Introducing the Idaho Mountain Festival

City of Rocks is one of my favorite climbing areas, and now there’s another reason to visit this incredible spot: the first annual Idaho Mountain Festival, coming September 27th to 30th. In the words of the organizers:

“The Idaho Mountain Festival will offer a four day event where climbers, as well as trail runners, can gather to enjoy endless climbing, trail races, activities, giveaways, music, meals, and workshops.

On September 27 – 30, 2012, festival attendees will enjoy a slew of free amenities including tent camping, dinners and breakfasts, and entertainment. Festival tickets will go on sale starting in March. Ticket options include an all-inclusive ticket for $45 that includes almost everything and a daily pass ticket for $25 that excludes the free tent camping.

The Idaho Mountain Festival has teamed up with Asana to make this event possible. Asana is an Idaho based company that specializes in bouldering specific climbing gear.

As of now, the Access Fund and Solid Rock – Climbers for Christ have also jumped on the bandwagon as sponsors for the festival. The Access Fund will be sending their new Conservation Team to manage an Adopt-a-Crag day that will allow the climbers to give back to the parks by cleaning up climbing areas and trails. Solid Rock – Climbers for Christ will be providing a Sunday morning breakfast as well as sending one of their athletes to host a bouldering clinic.”
