Located in Northern Utah, Ogden sits at the base of the spectacular Northern Wasatch Mountains, which has some of the best alpine routes in the region. There are climbing crags just minutes from downtown Ogden, with single pitch, sport, ice, and traditional climbing as well as bouldering with grades for all levels.

Ogden is the place Al Capone once said was too wild for his taste in the 1920's. Today Ogden has replaced the 1920's bootlegging, prostitution and gambling with high adventure climbing, skiing, kayaking, and mountain biking. Located in the Northern Wasatch Mountain Range Ogden has it all.

The OCF is widely recognized throughout greater Ogden and is a highly anticipated community event. Past sponsors include: Black Diamond, Petzl, Red Bull, Young Subaru, Marmot, Roosters, Red Chili, DMM, Evolv, La Sportiva, Ogden City Recreation, The Front Climbing Club, Suunto, Native, Recreation Outlet, Amer Sports Outlet, Innate, and many other local and national vendors. The OCF would not be possible without the generous support from past title sponsors, and guest athletes including: Gnarly Nutrition & Kyra Condie - 2021 , Black Diamond & Sonnie Trotter - 2019, Petzl & Emily Harrington - 2018, Petzl & Alex Honnold/ Cedar Wright - 2017, Petzl & Alex Puccio/ Mike Libecki - 2016, Young Subaru & Jeff Lowe - 2015, Mad Rock & Obe Carrion - 2014, Gear:30 & Hayden Kennedy - 2013; REVNRG & Peter Croft - 2012; Petzl & Beth Rodden - 2011; Black Diamond & Will Gadd - 2010; Joe Kinder & Anthony Chertudi - 2009; Micah Dash - 2008.

Each year the OCF makes significant gains in terms of growth and recognition. Our event consistently draws climbers from throughout the region including Salt Lake, Logan, and South Eastern Idaho. Based on last year’s event, we expect the Ogden Climbing Festival to continue to grow in participation. We invite participants and spectators of all ages and abilities to come get involved. Mark your calendars, hang up the skis, dust off your climbing shoes, and bring the entire family out to enjoy a weekend of Ogden's best climbing. Stay posted to the website for details.
