Season Updates

Welcome to all New and Returning OCF Members. We are looking forward to the upcoming 2018/2019 Ontario Competitive Climbing season!



OCF memberships fees for 2018/2019 will be increased to $45 to cover our increased sanctioning fees to CEC.

Registration is now open for all Bouldering locals.

The 2018/2019 Competition Schedule is available here.


As per August 21st Facebook Post:

There will be no CEC Open National Series events this season. We await clarification of the selection process for Nationals from the CEC High Performance Committee.


Bouldering –  Format Changes

  • D/E categories will continue to be 8 problem modified scramble with 8 attempt max.
  • B/C categories will be ISO format qualifier round consisting of 5 problems, and no finals round.
  • JR/A and Open categories will be ISO format qualifier round consisting of 5 problems. Top 8 athletes in each category will advance to finals round consisting of 4 problems. Qualifier and finals will follow IFSC format. (This format may change pending changes in the CEC qualification process for Nationals.)


  • C/D/E locals will feature D/E categories on Saturday and C category on Sunday.
  • JR/A/B and Open locals will feature JR/A/Open qualifiers on Saturday, with B category qualifiers on Sunday followed by JR/A/Open finals later on Sunday.



The format will remain the same as the 2017/2018 series as follows with slight adjustments:

  • D/E will have a modified scramble consisting of 4 routes, each of which they can attempt twice. For the 2018/2019 season, D/E climbers will follow a running order to organize athletes more efficiently and their score will take attempts into account to help eliminate ties.
  • B/C and JR/A/Open will have a qualifier round consisting of two routes, followed by an on-sight format final round with one route.


  • D/E locals will be held on Saturdays.
  • B/C and JR/A/Open locals will feature JR/A/Open climbers on Saturday, and B/C climbers on Sunday.
