The International Climbers’ Festival is the longest-running climbing festival in the world, now in it’s 21st year. Started by legendary climber Todd Skinner with the purpose of celebrating climbing, it’s reach has expanded to bring new awareness to this unique sport. Current projects fund local teens on guided trips up the Grand Teton to foster problem-solving skills through climbing while others bring films and art exhibitions to Lander’s world-wide climbing community.
Located in central Wyoming, Lander sits at the base of the spectacular granite-filled Wind River Range, which has some of the best alpine routes in the country. Just outside of town are the legendary sport-climbing crags of Sinks Canyon and Wild Iris, where you can find single pitch sport and traditional climbing as well as bouldering with grades for the whole family.
Proceeds from the International Climbers' Festival go to supporting Central Wyoming Climbers' Alliance's programs and mission. We hope to see you this summer!
