Greeting gang!  Come join us for the 19th annual Leavenworth Rockfest May 5th-6th.

Our mission is to strengthen the community through climbing and what better way to do that than by hosting the annual Leavenworth Rockfest! A grassroots rock climbing event, Rockfest has been Washington’s largest climbing festival for the past 18 years. Now it’s hosted by the Leavenworth Mountain Association as their largest fundraiser of the year and supported by several amazing people and companies, all of which have played an integral part in the success of past Rockfests as well as this years.
