The 13th Annual International Climbers Festival will be held July 5th through the 9th featuring slideshows, clinics, trade fair, parties and of course world-class climbing. This year we are very excited to host Patagonia Ambassador SonnieTrotter as our keynote presenter. There will also be slideshows by local NOLS instructor and professional adventure photographer Dave Anderson, Zion guru Mike Anderson, a sure to be entertaining film festival, and clinics by Arno Ilgner and Jackson Hole Mountain Guides. For those of you who have never been here before, the ICF is a non-competitive event where climbers get together, hit the crag, have some fun and celebrate our favorite sport. People come from all over the country, and we always have some brave souls who make the journey across one ocean or another to make sure we're truly international. Lander is indeed a world-class sport-climbing destination, home of the legendary Wild Iris and the ever-popular SinksCanyon. It's also a gateway to the Wind River Mountain Range, which boasts some of the best granite trad routes in the country. Please check our website climbersfestival.org or call Wild Iris Mountain Sports 1-888-284-5968 for more info and to purchase tickets. Hope to see you there!
