January 14-17
Ouray, Colorado

Each January the ice climbing tribe gathers for the Ouray Ice Festival to celebrate, learn about and support ice climbing. For those brave enough to venture onto into the ephemeral terrain that ice represents, the annual event represents a bit of a homecoming.

We’ll be at the Ouray Ice Festival in the vendor village cheering on hardmen(and women) from all over who wish to compete. There are tons of clinics to perfect your skill and many chances to try out the latest apparel and gear for climbing. There’s food, drink and more to be had. As always we will have some great swag to lay in your greedy little paws and hopefully some stories of our own by the end of the event.

After your long day fighting off the  screaming barfies, oak your tired bones in local beer from the The Ouray Brewing Company or in the hot springs literally in the middle of town.
