2024 promises to be an extraordinary year for outdoor sports enthusiasts, with sport climbing leading the way. This discipline, which made its debut at the Olympics in 2021, continues to gain global popularity, with a series of dedicated events and festivals in Italy and across Europe.

Sport climbing is a modern discipline that has garnered a large following over the past 20 years. With over 25 million practitioners in approximately 150 countries worldwide, it is a young and versatile sport, practiced both outdoors and in urban settings. The excitement and suspense of this sport have captured the public’s attention, culminating in its inclusion in the Olympic program at Tokyo 2020 and the Olympic Games in Paris 2024.

Get ready to immerse yourself in festivals that not only offer thrilling competitions but also engaging experiences such as workshops, concerts, and a variety of activities, including yoga, highlining, caving, and massages.
