Competition Belaying Working Group

The USA Climbing Competition Belaying Working Group (CBWG) was formed to provide guidance, instruction, and standards around belaying at USA Climbing competitions, as outlined in the Working Group's Charter as approved by the USA Climbing Board of Directors.

The CBWG’s focus is safety, competition fairness, and consistency for belaying across all USA Climbing competitions, championship events, invitational events, open events, and local events. All competition series are included: Youth, Collegiate, Paraclimbing, and Open (Adult).
