Valdez Rock Climbing Festival

Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Valdez Rock Fest!

New! We listened to your input so this year we've added a full lineup of yoga to the rock fest which is why we changed the name to the Valdez Rock and Flow Fest June 23 - 25.

We have some great climbing clinics, a smorgasbord of yoga classes and a great concert lined up Saturday night featuring Trevor Green on Kelsey Dock Plaza.

Also new this year, fest vets take note that we've grown out of our old basecamp in Old Town.

Our new festival Basecamp is at Glacier Campground meaning you can park and camp within walking distance to the Campground Wall/Airport Heights/Panorama Point/Lookout Rock! crags so you can climb round the clock under the midnight sun.
