Keep it Clean

As we roll into nice weather and climbing starts to consume our free time it is good to consider safety. Here is an older but quick and interesting read found on Climbing Magazine’s website. The article expounds on the importance of keeping your rope and other nylon gear clean.

Castle Rocks Climbing Closure

It looks like the BLM wants to close 400 acres of climbing at Castle Rocks Idaho to rock climbing. Check out the Access Fund for more information and use their letter writing tool to express your concern with this closure.

The Facebook page for Castle Rocks has this to say :

This is a map (see below) showing the Castle Rocks Geological Area and the jurisdictional boundaries: State Park, BLM, and Forest Service. The most popular climbs are open and within the state park. The BLM has closed its jurisdictional lands to climbing, new trails, and dispersed camping, and these have been closed under temporary rules for years already. Hiking, hunting, and “scrambling” is still permitted. The closure was made to protect cultural resources. If you would like a copy of the BLM’s Record of decision, you can contact them at BLM_ID_BurleyOffice@blm.gov, or 208-677-6600.

Please understand: Castle Rocks State Park remains open to climbing and is managed according to the 2003 climbing management plan. The BLM’s decision has no effect on Castle Rocks State Park activities. We look forward to seeing you this summer, and at the Idaho Mountain Festival, September 26-29.

Despite having certain areas open we still should take action. Click image below to see the areas under BLM jurisdiction.

2013 Idaho Mountain Festival

2013 Idaho Mountain Festival

Asana presents the Idaho Mountain Festival, a four-day outdoor event at City of Rock National Reserve and Castle Rocks State Park in Idaho.

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.

These two parks are home of some of the best granite domes for sport, trad, and bouldering. The trail systems through both parks make for great hiking, trail running, and mountain biking.

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.

The Idaho Mountain Festival will include the following attractions, plus more:

  • Open climbing at City of Rocks and Castle Rocks
  • Various activities, group sessions, clinics, and contests
  • Camping inside Castle Rocks State Park
  • Various meals
  • 13.1-mile Trail Race
  • 6.2-mile Trail Race

Check out the Idaho Mountain Festival’s Web site for up-to-date information.
