This is a fun social competition with the aim of climbing cleanly as many climbs as possible in 60 minutes. The climbs will be completed on auto belays. Points for each climb will be awarded based on difficulty. A grade 10 is worth 10 points and a 21 worth 21 points, but the grades are not revealed until the end of the competition. Competitors attempt to climb as many climbs as possible within one hour. Points can only be awarded for each climb once but competitors can have as many attempts as they need to get to the top. After each attempt, the competitor must go to back of the queue before next attempt. At the end of the 60 minutes, competitors may finish the climb started so long as all limbs are off the ground. In the event of tie, a speed climb decider will be used.

Rock climbing is the latest sport to be included in the Olympics and is taking off in Victoria as Victoria is the only state to offer the speed route that will be competed at the Olympic Games. Climbing is a test of fitness combining power and endurance with problem solving skills to find the fastest most efficient path to the top of the wall, usually following a dedicated designed pathway. Individual climbs can be designed to cater for a wide range of abilities from 5 year olds and up to Olympic level.
