EP Climbing, a key player in the meteoric rise of climbing in Indonesia

The history of climbing in Indonesia has accelerated over the last 4-5 years. Over a year ago, we were telling you about the first World Cup in Indonesia in October 2022 and how proud EP was to be the wall supplier for this competition and to be able to support the FPTI in its achievement. 

Today, EP Climbing has carried out no less than 8 projects in Indonesia since 2018: the first and second Jakarta IFSC World Cups, the Asian Games in Palembang in April 2023, the Jakarta International climbing park, GBK where the 2023 Asian Qualifiers took place in the three disciplines and in which 4 Olympic places were awarded. The icing on the cake was that the Indonesians won their tickets, a testament to their hard work. 

Could the next Olympics be the opportunity for the Indonesians to win their first climbing gold medal? It looks like it!

EP Climbing is very proud to have been able to support Indonesia in the organisation of all the international competitions held there by providing walls, holds and climbing volumes. It was on these same walls that a man's speed record was beaten, 4.90 by Veddriq Leonardo after a series of 7 Indonesian world records, making the EP walls the fastest in the world.

How long have you worked with EP Climbing ?

How long have you worked with EP Climbing ?

I started this fantastic journey with Entre-Prises China in May 2019, as export manager.

The main missions at the time where to create, develop and maintain the export service in order to fill our ASEAN customers needs and asses the market in the region.

The main challenge was to understand the technical and structural aspects of a climbing wall, along with the market development.

After 5 years, we are now making our EP Climbing Indonesian Office in Central Jakarta, to bring climbing to everyone in Asia Pacific!

Zoom on Gelora Bung Karno (GBK), located in Jakarta

In the heart of the Gelora Bung Karno park, ideally located in Jakarta, a new international climbing centre of the FPTI, the local climbing federation, has been set up. This project, funded by the Indonesian Ministry of Sport and Health and monitored by the Ministry of Public Works and Housing (PUPR), was the local climbing federation's first call for tenders to build a climbing wall.

EP Climbing has fulfilled its mission as a contractor and has taken great care of the local federation, the FPTI, with a view to its 3rd international competition in November 2023: the Asian Qualifiers.

For this competition, the FPTI decided to install the IFSC's official bouldering wall, the Boulder TITAN, so that its teams can train and develop their skills in the bouldering discipline, since it is precisely this wall that will be used at the 2024 Olympic Games. This is Indonesia's first international bouldering competition, which is held on the IFSC-approved 30-metre version of TITAN. For this event, the walls were adorned with EP Climbing volumes with which the route openers gave free rein to their creativity.
