September 1-3



Simply put, City of Rocks is a cragging mecca. It is located a few miles north of the Utah border in rural Idaho. There are few places in the country with as extensive and as concentrated quality climbing. The climbing opportunities are within easily accessed camping sites. The drive-up campsites are literally within the crags and are just a flip-flop stroll with morning coffee away. It is no surprise the area receives world-wide recognition. The City of Rocks offers a wide variety of climbing so it is perfect for families and learning the basics of climbing. It is also perfect for more advanced trad climbing techniques on the area's many crack and flake based routes.
