Amateur competition

Sunday, February 19, 2023, 10:00 am – 2:30 pm


The technical amateur competition is a mixed competition.

The qualification phases take place on 2 mixed routes in top rope.

Each participant must complete both routes. The five (5) fastest competitors will qualify for the final which will take place in the afternoon.

The final is a mixed route, on a top rope.

In case of a tie for first place if more than one climber completes all routes, the fastest combined time will determine the winner.


The amateur competition awards ceremony will be held at the end of the afternoon in the tent.

The first 3 winners will receive equipment prizes from our sponsors.



The competition is judged and timed.

Climbers have one attempt to complete each of the qualifying routes as quickly as possible.

For a route to be considered completed, the climber must have completed the ascent in a top rope, from the ground to the belay, without a fall, without tension (dry), or using the anchors. The progression is made only with the rock and ice.

In case of a fall, the climber cannot go back to the route. His points end at the last unclipped quickdraw.

The official knot for tying a competitor is the double figure eight knot.

At the start signal, the climber must have both feet on the ground.

Only competitors, judges, volunteers and photographers are allowed in the competition areas.

Please respect all Festiglace personnel.
