Competition F.A.Q.


How do I register/pay?

Go to our website, select EVENTS, and choose the current competition. Login if you have a profile, or create a profile. Choose your category. Click the option to pay and follow the prompts. We encourage everyone to pay online if possible as it speeds up the check in process the day of the comp.

What category should I register for?

Beginner - suggested climbing grade V0-V3; Advanced - suggested climbing grade V4+.

Can I get a refund if I don't compete?

No refunds are issued within 7 days of the competition, unless inability to climb is due to injury, in which case a doctors note must be provided. 

Can I change my category once I'm registered?

Yes. Please send us an email to to request the change.

Do I need to sign a waiver?

Yes. If you haven't been into our facility before, we require a liability waiver from you which you can complete online ahead of time here: (English); (Français) There are separate links for printable waivers available online as well.

Do I register as a team or as an individual?

Everyone enters as an individual only. However on competition day, many competitors arrive with a team they are a part of, and represent their team or gym with matching shirts.

I'm from out of town, where can I stay?

A: The gym is quite central! The closest hotels downtown are The Delta, The Crowne Plaza (Beaverbrook), and the Hilton; they're all within the lovely downtown area. There are also lots of options uptown (nothing is too far in Fredericton). Of course there are likely some great Inn and Airbnb options as well.

Competition Day

What should I bring?

Climbing shoes, chalk and comfortable clothes that give you full range of motion. Additionally, it is very important to ensure your body has the fuel it needs to make it through the competition. A water bottle, a sports energy drink for before or after, and some snacks are suggested. Granola bars, fruit or energy 

What time should I arrive?

We recommend arriving 30-60 minutes before climbing is scheduled to start. This will give you lots of time to stow away your stuff, use the washroom, and warm up.

Can family/friends come and watch?

Yes. However sometimes there may not be much room for spectators on the main floor with all the competitors in the space, depending on the turnout. During most competitions, we will have our mezzanine open for spectators. All persons in the facility require a waiver, and must be checked-in at the front desk.

How long do we have to climb?

Three hours. If climbing starts late for any reason, it is still 3 hours from when the climbing started.

Where and when will results be posted?

Full results will usually be posted by the water fountain within an hour after the event. For comps with finals, the lineup will usually be posted on Facebook shortly after they’re posted on-site.

If I am not competing, can I volunteer to help? If so, who do I contact? 

Yes, please contact Volunteers are essential to the success of each event.
