International Climbers' Festival, Lander, WY

Festival Info {Pls Google for schedule of events}

Eighteen years ago a group of climbers launched the first International Climbers’ Festival right here in Lander WY. This grassroots festival has been a summer highlight ever since. Climbers from all around the globe have made the voyage to Lander to celebrate climbing, listen to great music, drink beer and climb.

Not much has changed since that summer in 1993. Sure there are hundreds of additional routes, new crags developed and more great places to eat or get a brew, but a lot of things haven’t changed much. Wild Iris Mountain Sports is still the one stop shop for info and gear for Wyoming climbing. The Lander Bar/ Gannett Grill is still the place to grab a bite to eat and cool off with a brew after a day in the Canyon. City Park still offers free camping and Lander is still a fantastic place to test your skills whichever discipline of climbing suits your fancy.

Whether you’ve come to Lander to clip bolts, do long routes in the mountains or boulder, Lander welcomes climbers with open arms. This is a town full of climbers, passionate about the sport and the community. In fact, cultivating community around climbing climbing is one of the main goals of the festival. A vision that is the same as it was when it was started.

    What Mountain Project has to say about Lander area climbing:

    "Wild Iris is one of the most beautiful sport climbing areas in the U.S. It's hard to beat a warm summer day spent climbing the white limestone pockets of Wild Iris. And to top it off, you'll belay comfortably beneath a peaceful canopy of aspen trees. Sublime."

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
