NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 24, 2021 – Arc’teryx Equipment, the global design company specializing in technical high-performance apparel and equipment, has entered into a multi-year agreement with Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) to support competition climbing at a national level.

“CEC is honored to partner with Arc’teryx,” says Christiane Marceau, Executive Director of CEC. “This iconic design brand has proven it shares our values, such as community and the pursuit of excellence. This strategic partnership will bring awareness and opportunities to both of our organizations and to the Canadian climbing community.”

Arc’teryx will provide apparel for the Canadian Climbing Team and CEC high performance athletes representing Canada at all international competitions including competition clothing for Alannah Yip, Sean McColl and national coach Andrew Wilson at the IFSC World Championships and Tokyo Olympic Games, where sport climbing will make its Olympic debut.
