If you're looking for anime similar to Iwakakeru! Sport Climbing Girls, you might like these titles.
Despite her great potential, Ayano Hanesaki would rather avoid badminton than play it. But, when she meets Nagisa Aragaki, a third year who spends every waking moment perfecting her game, she’s inspired. Encouraged by their coach, Tachibana Kentarou, Ayano and Nagisa will hit the court and rally against opponents and rivals with amazing skills!
In both Iwakakeru! Sport Climbing Girls and Hanebado! we have a sports anime that follows a story mainly centered around a girl cast. Hanebado follows badminton and Iwakakeru! follows wall climbing. If you enjoyed the interactions between Ayano and Nagisa as they compete against each other you’ll most likely enjoy Iwakakeru! as it also offers many rivalries, such as Akane and Jun and Jun and Konomi. These rivalries are present in both people on the same team and opposite teams, as Hanebado does also. Both animes also offer some inner turmoils and personal problems many characters might have. We also get to know about some of the characters on the other teams.
I watched both of them. Similiar enough to be enjoyed by the same kinds of people the quality diffrence is pretty big to me though.
