With your All-Inclusive Festival Pass, you'll be able to enjoy the following attractions at no extra charge:
PETZL Booty Hunt: We are excited to host the first ever Petzl 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!

Climber's Rodeo: Come have fun participating in various shenanigans: mechanical bull, boulder box, rodeo clipping, and more.
Table O'Swag: On the last night of the festival, you might be one of the lucky festival attendees that gets to come up to the Table O' Swag to pick a prize from one of our sponsors.
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.
King of the Castle Fun Run: Challenge yourself by running 6-miles of trail around Castle Rocks State Park.
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. Once you park your car, you might never need to touch it till it's time to go home.
At-Your-Own-Risk 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.
