2018 IFSC Climbing World Championships


Innsbruck, 06.09.2018 - 16.09.2018

The 2018 Climbing Worlds are returning to Innsbruck for the first time since 1993. Tirol’s capital is getting ready to host the world’s biggest climbing competition with the brand-new Innsbruck Climbing Center at Sillufer and at Olympia World.

Climbing’s pinnacle event is being held in Austria for the first time since 1993. Exactly 25 years since the first edition of the Worlds took place in Innsbruck, the IFSC Climbing World Championships is set to return to Tirol’s capital. The 2018 World Championships in Innsbruck will revolve around the theme of “Make Friends. Climb. Celebrate.”

Some 750 athletes coming from 70 different nations will compete for their country at the brand-new Innsbruck Climbing Center at Sillufer and at Innsbruck Olympia World. Athletes compete in different disciplines including Lead, Bouldering, Speed and Paraclimbing. World Champions are crowned in each discipline. The Worlds will attract an estimated 40,000 spectators from all over the world and are broadcast to a global audience.

One of the main highlights for visitors attending the event will be the Climbers Paradise Village on the Marktplatz square in the centre of Innsbruck. It will host lots of great side events particularly aimed at those new to rock climbing. Artificial climbing walls will provide plenty of opportunities to try out this fun sport with the help of trained instructors.
