APTCC Competitors

2016 APTCC Competitors

Congratulations to the competitors who participated in the 2016 APTCC held in Hong Kong on November 26 and 27.

Past Competitors


Competitors must represent an ISA Chapter or Associate Organization (AO)in the Asia Pacific Region. Prior to acceptance, competitors must be a member of ISA or a recognized chapter or associate organization.

Each Asia Pacific Chapter/AO may send a team of up to 8 competitors (5 men, 3 women) to represent them. The representatives must have placed in the top five at the chapter competition within the current or previous 2 years. An invitation is sent to each eligible chapter requesting recommendations for their team and the Chapter TCC Chair must approve the submission of their competitors to the APTCC. No competitor may personally apply for inclusion into the APTCC without the approval of their Chapter TCC chair.

Since the current APTCC Champions already have a spot at the competition, those individuals are not included as part of the chapter team.

Guest Climbers

Asia Pacific ISA members whose own country does not have an ISA Chapter or whose organization does not hold a climbing competition, may be included to compete in the APTCC as a guest climber if they have competed in another countries competition and they have placed in the top five.

International Guest Climbers must pre-register and all entry fees must be paid prior to the APTCC. International applications will not be accepted on the day of the event.

There will be a maximum of 5 International guest climbers of which no more than three may be male.
