Erin McNeice


Lattice Training athlete, Erin McNeice, has qualified for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games at the Olympic Qualifier Series.

Erin’s love for climbing started at the age of 5 when her dad took her and her brother climbing. They soon joined the kids’ climbing club and developed a passion for the sport.

When she was 8, her family moved to Malaysia where she started climbing at a bigger wall in Kuala Lumpur.

At the age of 12, Erin moved back to England and competed in her first national competition. It was there that she saw the GB Junior Climbing Team and knew that she wanted to be a part of it. Despite initially being averse to lead climbing, Erin’s second-place finish at a national lead event earned her a ticket to selection for the GB Junior squad, which she was thrilled about.

At the IFSC Climbing World Youth Championships in 2021, Erin placed 5th for Boulder and 10th for Lead.

The following year, she was selected for the GB Climbing Team and had a hectic competition season, competing in her first Youth World Cup, the European Championships, and the Youth Worlds, where she placed 6th in combined. She also made her first senior international final at the European Lead Cup in Zilina.

After finishing her A levels in 2022, Erin made the decision to defer her university place in Sheffield and focus on climbing full time. In pre-season 2023, she won at Plywood Masters and had an “unexpected” win at CWIF!

In the 2023 season, her first year in the senior circuit, Erin has done fantastically; with highlights such as 9th in Boulder at the European Cup in Chambéry, 17th in Boulder at the World Cup in Seoul, 27th in Boulder at the World Championships in Bern and 18th in Combined at the European Qualifier in Laval.

“Climbing has gone from a hobby to a passion, and I am extremely grateful to everyone who is helping me live this dream.”
