Join us June 13th, 2015 for the sixteenth annual Rockfest Climbing Festival in Leavenworth, WA.

DER KLETTERGARTEN 2015 flatPresented by the American Alpine Club and co-hosted by Leavenworth Mountain Sports and the Northwest Mountain School, Rockfest is Washington’s largest annual climbing festival. Jump into Der Klettergarten, the team bouldering comp, take a clinic with the Northwest Mountain School, or climb on your own and then come eat BBQ, camp, and party (with beer) at Fromms’ Field Saturday night. After the mega raffle, the legendary John “blotter is my spotter” Sherman will provide what I’m sure will be an entertaining slideshow to wrap up the events on Saturday.

A festival pass will include camping Friday/Saturday night, Saturday breakfast (thanks SRCFC!), BBQ Saturday night and Sunday breakfast sponsored by Mountaingear. Go to to register or for more information. Clinic space is limited and pre-registration is encouraged.

Der Klettergarten Bouldering Comp Details: Grab your team of 3 and participate in the second annual bouldering competition presented by Leavenworth Mountain Sports. Icicle Canyon boasts some of the finest bouldering in North America and this year’s event has teams of 3 battling for the highest combined score for climbs completed between 9 am and 4 pm on Saturday. $50 per team includes competition entry for your entire team plus dinner and breakfast following the event. Plus, the first 10 teams to register each score $12 worth of free Friction Labs chalk!

Below is a video Icicle TV shot last year during the 2014 Rockfest. Catch a glimpse of climbing in beautiful Icicle Canyon (with and without ropes), the bouldering pad rodeo, the bouldering pad toss, and the table of giveaways! See you on Saturday!
