About Us

Gauteng Climbing (GC) promotes and administers the sport of amateur Competition Climbing in Gauteng.

Our objective is to develop the sport for the benefit of the general public at large, and all activities are carried out in a non-profit manner. The association organises and supervises competition climbing events in Gauteng with the ultimate purpose of selecting a provincial team to compete in National Events organised and endorsed by the South African National Climbing Federation (SANCF).

The SANCF is affiliated with both the South African Olympic Committee (SASCOC) and the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC). In line with the appropriate regulations Gauteng Climbing will make suitable recommendations for the issuance of Gauteng Provincial Colours, or other forms of climber recognition.
