Speed climbing is climbing in which speed is the ultimate goal. Competition speed climbing as governed by the International Federation of Sport Climbing takes place on 10 m or 15 m artificial walls. The climbing time is determined by mechanical-electric timing (the competitor strikes a switch at the top of the route) but manual timing is also possible. When mechanical-electric timing is used, the climbing time shall be measured with an accuracy of 0.01 second. Alge-Timing has the fitting timing equipment for this, from contact mats at the start and beginning to timing devices and display boards.
