Ontario Tree Climbing Championship

2018 OTCC - September 15th
(Mandatory climber registration, gear check & climber orientation September 14th; 4pm)

Canatara Park,
Sarnia, Ontario.

 


The Ontario Tree Climbing Championship takes place every September at a different venue. It's a fantastic family event, so come out and cheer on the climbers and learn about professional arboriculture!

The OTCC features 5 preliminary events: a work climb, belayed speed climb, simulated aerial rescue, foot-lock style rope climb and throwline challenge. The top 4 men and top 2 women competitors from the preliminaries advance to the Master’s Challenge, a final event where the Ontario Men’s and Women’s Champion are crowned. These 2 top climbers go on to compete at the International Tree Climbing Championship the following summer.

Spectators are welcome to attend this free event. A trade show of arborist equipment is featured and spectators can try climbing like an arborist in the “Climb For All Ages” under the guidance of a professional arborist. 

For further information please call 1-888-463-2316 or email info@isaontario.com.
