Open Boulder Nationals Selection 

CEC has allotted quota spots to each PTSO for Open Boulder Nationals (November 27-28, Délire Escalade). These quota spots will be given out as follows.
  1. Top quota spots - issued to athletes who place in the top 70% of the field at the NACS event October 23-24 at Altitude Gym in Kanata.
  2. Remaining quota spots - issued to athletes based on their ranking at a selection event to take place at Climb Base5 North Van on November 6. More details on this event will be arriving soon.
Rationale: Athletes attending OBN are vying for a spot on the Open Canadian National Team. In order to achieve enough CNR points to make the NT, athletes need to also collect points by attending NACS events. Priority has therefore been given to those athletes.
Note: Current CEC HPP athletes and Youth Champions have been preselected for OBN and are not part of the BC quota.

Our trailer needs a home! 

SCBC is looking for a secure space to store our equipment trailer.

Here are the details:
  • Trailer is approximately 5ft x 8ft
  • Storage must be secure and on your property (not on the street)
  • Indoors would be best, but outside is ok too
  • Ideally, you would also be able to transport the trailer to SCBC competitions
Can you help us out?? Please contact

President - David Faulkner
Vice-President - Melanie Marier
Secretary - Joanne McLarty
Registrar - Terry Spurrell
Athlete Rep - Brielle Zacharias
Director at Large - Simon Parton

Yours in Climbing,


David, Melanie, Joanne, Terry, Brielle, Simon and Mark
