ATTRACTIONS

With your All-Inclusive Festival Pass, you'll be able to enjoy the following attractions at no extra charge.

Idaho Mountain Festival provides an opportunity to disconnect from the daily grind and enjoy some quality time at camp. Whether it’s your first experience with us or you’ve attended before, our Festival allows everyone to take the time to learn useful and exciting skills while creating unforgettable memories.

PETZEL Booty Hunt: We are excited to host another Petzel Booty Hunt. On Friday, you will awake to find your favorite trails and climbs bootified. Rise early and be the first to spot the brightly colored Ergonomic-Gift-Guards (E.G.G.s) hidden around Castle Rock. Each E.G.G. contains some form of prize/booty and returning the E.G.G. to the Petzl booth will also enter the finder into a raffle for a new GRIGRI + Belay Device. Keep your eyes peeled and be ready to collect climbing booty!

Gear Demos: Our sponsors are bringing their demo fleets for you to try out their awesome gear. Forgot to pack something? I bet you one of our sponsors will have you covered.

Climber's Rodeo: Come have fun participating in various shenanigans: boulder box, rodeo clipping, games and more.

Tent City: Your all-inclusive festival pass includes three nights of camping inside Castle Rocks State Park during the festival in our Tent City...the only time of the year when camping is allowed in the park. The best thing about it is that you can easily walk to all the climbing from your tent. 

Poker Ride/Hike/Run: Collect a hand of five poker cards along a 6-mile trial-loop and you might be the lucky winner.

Bikers/runners/hikers will tackle a 6-mile trail through the majestic Castle Rocks State Park. Along the trail they will pick up one card from each of the five "card stations", collecting a hand of five cards. At the end of the day, during the festival's evening shenanigans, we will randomly select two poker hands and award the two individuals that have the best version of the selected hands. This is not an organized race. If you choose to do it, you'll be doing it at your own risk and you can do it anytime between 7am and 5:30pm on Saturday. Anyone can ride/run/hike the course and collect the cards, but only festival attendees are eligible to win prizes.

Sponsored Meals: Various sponsors and caterers will be providing dinners and breakfasts during the festival. 

King of the Castle Fun Run: Challenge yourself by running 6-miles of trail around Castle Rocks State Park.

Bouldering Sessions: Join in on some high-energy and ultra-fun bouldering sessions. This includes the traditional "Moonlight Bouldering" session on Thursday night as well as the two-morning sessions on Friday and Saturday morning. 

Table O'Swag: On the last night of the festival, there is a large raffle that every attendee is entered into. You might be one of the lucky festival attendees that get to come up to the Table O' Swag to pick a prize from one of our sponsors.

Off-The-Rock Workshops: Some of our sponsors are bringing in an athlete or two to conduct "Off-The-Rock" workshops to teach and share skills that will make you a more proficient climber. You will be able to sign up for workshops when you arrive and check in at the festival. First come, first served.​​

Climbing: Make sure you bring your own climbing gear to get in some of the funnest sport, trad, and bouldering you'll ever do. Don't have a belay buddy? Just be social and you'll have no problem teaming up with someone or some group. It's all about meeting new people.

FAQ

WHAT IS THE IDAHO MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL?

The Idaho Mountain Festival is a 4-day climbing, trail running, and mountain biking event that has little to do with competition and more about the celebration and gathering of these great outdoor sports. At the festival, outdoor enthusiasts will have the chance to enjoy the classic granite rock climbing and peaceful trail runs while socializing with new and old friends.

WHO CAN ATTEND?

Anyone that purchases a festival pass is welcome to come and attend the festival. All of the attractions and activities are centered on rock climbing, trail running, and mountain biking.

WHERE IS THE LOCATION OF THE FESTIVAL?

The Idaho Mountain Festival will utilize both Castle Rocks State Park and City of Rocks National Reserve near Almo, ID. The majority of activities will take place at “Festival Headquarters” outside of the lodge in Castle Rock State Park.

HOW MUCH IS A FESTIVAL PASS?

Festival attendees can purchase an all-inclusive festival pass for $75. Climbers 8 and under come for free!

WILL THERE BE CLIMBS SET UP AND SOMEONE TO BELAY ME?

Festival staff, the sponsors, or the visiting athletes will NOT be setting up routes, hanging ropes, or belaying festival attendees. Any rock climbing will be done at the attendee’s own risk and with their own gear. Feel free to come to the festival to meet up with people to climb…it’s all about reaching out and making new friends.

DID YOU SAY THAT CAMPING AND MEALS ARE FREE?

For those that purchase the all-inclusive festival pass, they will be able to tent-camp in the “Tent City” and eat dinner and breakfast for free. The Tent City is located in the grassy area behind the Lodge in Castle Rock State Park. Festival staff will assign attendees to a spot. Each spot can hold up to two tents and 6 people. We encourage people to share tents. We are limited in only allowing up to 350 people in the Tent City.

CAN I BRING MY DOG?

Dogs are always welcomed in Castle Rock State Park and City of Rocks National Reserve, as long as they are constantly on a leash and the owners pick up their messes. During the festival, with a lot of people, we do encourage you to leave your dog at home if possible.

CAN WE BRING OUR TRAILER OR RV?

As part of the festival we can only provide tent camping in the Tent City. If you need/want to attend the festival and sleep in a trailer/RV, than you will need to make arrangements to camp in the Smokey Mountain Campground or in the City of Rocks. If you do this, than you might want to consider purchasing the festival day pass…unless you want to eat dinner and breakfast with us.

IS THERE A LOT OF PARKING?

Parking for festival attendees is located right outside of the park. This will require you to walk your gear a reasonable distance to the actual festival area. We highly encourage car-pooling to the festival. The parking lots inside the park are reserved for the general public, park staff, etc. Please only use the designated parking area for festival attendees. For those that are sleeping in their car/truck/van, there will be a lot inside the park specifically for vehicle camping...just no RVs or trailers.

WILL THERE BE BEER?

Festival attendees are free to bring and consume alcohol at Festival Headquarters in Castle Rock State Park. Alcohol is allowed in both parks. Festival staff and the sponsors have NOT made any plans to provide any type of alcohol during the festival. Alcohol is available at Rock City in Almo, ID. Please drink responsibly. Don’t drive drunk. Use a designated driver. Understand that festival staff, Idaho State park rangers, and the Cassia County Sheriff’s department reserve the right to discipline and evict those that abuse their privilege to drink.

WHAT IS THERE TO DO AT THE FESTIVAL?

During the festival, we will provide many attractions to entertain the attendees. We plan to provide "off-rock" climbing workshops, trail races, a poker ride/run/hike, slideshows, movie showings, free tent camping, free dinner and breakfast, activities and small contests to win swag from our sponsors, and morning yoga, trail runs, and mountain bike rides.

I PREREGISTERED FOR MY FESTIVAL PASS, WILL IT BE MAILED TO ME?

Thank you for preregistering. This helps us a lot in planning and making sure we have enough parking, camping spots, prizes, and food. By preregistering for a festival pass, all you have to do is show up and check in at Festival Headquarters to receive all passes, tickets, and camping spots. We won’t be able to mail these items to you before the festival. Have no worries, your name is on the list and you are good to go.
