Speed climbing is the only climbing discipline that is uniquely focused on competition. One of the Olympic disciplines, the main goal is to climb a standardised route on a standardized 15 m / 49 ft wall in the fastest time possible. Two competitors race head-to-head on two identical side-by-side routes in eliminations principle. The current world record is 5,28 s.
In recent years and especially after its inclusion in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, speed climbing has gained popularity and many professional and non-professional climbing gyms are adding speed walls to their facilities.
