Walltopia Speed Climbing Walls

IFSC Certified Manufacturer

Speed climbing is the only climbing discipline that is uniquely focused on competition. 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.

Why add a speed wall

  • Bring in competitive teams – paying attention to professional athletes’ needs gets entire teams coming to train and eventually turns them into loyal advocates for your gym.
  • Have the possibility to host or organize competitions – Local, national, regional - speed walls present multiple event opportunities.
  • Diversify the climbing experience – Speed climbing is still a novelty for most unprofessional athletes, so having speed walls at your gym will allow them to try something new.
  • Space optimization – speed walls take up 60 to 105 sqm. climbing surface (6 to 7 m wide, 10 or 15 m tall) but they are suitable for gyms of all sizes that have the required ceiling height. They could serve as regular rope climbing walls and can feature many routes. When they are used for official competitions, only the speed climb route holds should remain.

Autobelay

Timers

IFSC certified speed climbing timers for competitions and world record climbing are available to order through Walltopia. If you plan to host official IFSC competitions you should stick to the IFSC certified options. If the speed climbing wall will only serve recreational purposes and training, timers from other manufacturers will also be an option.

Flooring

Mats are not used for official speed climbing competitions – the climbers start off from a sensor on solid ground. However, mats can be installed and are highly recommended if the wall is a part of a commercial climbing gym for everyday use. The mats will then be removed for official competitions and placed back after.
