WelcomeWhile Idaho is famous worldwide for potatoes, there is an abundance of quality climbing throughout the state some of which is world class like City of Rocks or Elephants Perch or newly on the radar, The Fins.
City of Rocks and its neighbor, Castle Rocks, are the main destinations for out-of-state climbers. Both feature fantastic cragging in a beautiful setting. More recently, The Fins, with it's high quality vertical limestone, is attracting a lot of interest from climbers on the circuit due to the large number of stellar 5.12 through 5.14d routes.
Also of interest are The Sawtooth Range near Stanley, the limestome climbing near Riggins, and the basalt climbing of Massacre Rocks near American Falls.
There are many more climbing areas in the state worth a visit if you are in the area.
For ease of navigation the state is divided into 5 regions. North Idaho (Sandpoint, Q'Emilin Park), West Idaho (McCall Area, Black Cliffs), Central Idaho (Sawtooth Range, The Fins), South Idaho (City of Rocks, Dierkes Lake) and East Idaho (Massacre Rocks, Ross Park).
