Aftermovie 2022


The Villars Escalade Association, organizer of the climbing weeks, is lucky to have the help and support of three climbing gyms as partners. They will be present during each weekend of the 2 events with a climbing animation. We warmly thank our partners, Vertic-Halle and Totem. You can find the schedule of the public climbing walls on the pages paraclimbing and climbing world cup. 



On behalf of the Villars Escalade Organizing Committee, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all our partners and sponsors, without whom this new edition of the Climbing World Cup could not take place. If the International Federation of Climbing (IFSC) is coming back to Villars for the 7th time, it is thanks to the precious support of the numerous partners and sponsors, most of whom follow us faithfully. This internationally renowned event, which is one of the 7 stages of the world tour, would obviously not be possible without the many volunteers who also deserve to be warmly thanked.
It is also an honor to host a Paraclimbing event for the second time. The competitions proposed in 2022 were very spectacular and the athletes deserve a support worthy of their incredible performances!
Villars is becoming a well known and recognized place in the world of climbing and we are looking forward to welcoming you for this event which will be, for sure, a celebration of this highly popular sport!
