Competitive teams

This competitive program is offered in collaboration with Accès Escalade Montreal, an NPO that contributes to the advancement and development of climbing as a sport by using it for social purposes with youth.


The people registered for the season (September-May) commit to participate in climbing competitions of the “Coupe Québec d´escalade” circuit in difficulty, bouldering and speed climbing. As the circuit is governed by the FQME (Fédération Québécoise de la Montagne et de l’Escalade), they will obtain a Quebec ranking in their age category. Their objective will be participation in the Quebec championships, and for some, participation at a national and international level..

Our competitive teams are divided into three categories of different levels and ages.

Talent detection session

A talent detection session allows young people interested in competing to participate in an evaluation session on three Olympic disciplines: difficulty, bouldering, and speed climbing. During this period, our qualified coaches will assess everyone’s skills and determine their level.

Depending on their skills, they will then join a pre-competitive or competitive group.

Next talent detection session to come!
