Which would you choose and why?

Any tips on how to maximize the experience for a climber who currently climbs WI 3-4?

Thanks!

Do you mean that you lead WI3-4? If that's the case, I'd skip the fest and get a ton of volume climbing the classics without standing in line.

I've been to both (festivals) & loved both.  If I had to choose, I'd go back to Bozeman before Ouray.  Nothing against Ouray, I just loved the atmosphere in Montana and Hyalite Canyon is beautiful. However, Hyalite is a drive from downtown Boze, whereas the ice park is a walk (literally) from your hotel or the coffee shop.

Niether, but if you must and want the easiest access of your life then go ouray 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
