Homestead Climbers' Festival

When: Sat Feb 23, 2019 - Sun Feb 24, 2019
Where: Homestead, Phoenix, AZ, USA
Event Description: Join us for the inaugural Homestead Climbers’ Festival in February!

The Homestead is considered by many to be one of the best winter limestone climbing areas in the United States. Its 250 sport climbs, 12 limestone walls, and true tufa features stood unguarded for decades in a region of international mining interests and lands in need of stronger protection. In 2014, access was imminently threatened when the bank foreclosed on a piece of private property that overlapped key portions of the access road, trailhead, and first few dozen routes. With a narrow window of opportunity, Access Fund used its Climbing Conservation Loan Program to secure temporary ownership of the Homestead access point.

WE NEED YOUR HELP to bring the climbing community together to enjoy this remarkable climbing destination and give back to Homestead’s conservation. 100% of event proceeds will contribute to the amount owed for the land - currently over $65,000 - to keep Homestead open and accessible to climbing and recreation for years to come.
