Win A Trip For Two To The International Climbers' Festival

We at Outdoor Research are beyond psyched to announce the second annual #SheAdventures Scholarship! This year, we’d love to send you and a friend to Lander, WY for the International Climbers’ Festival. Our winner and their guest will have an incredible opportunity to hone their climbing skills through educational clinics and a privately guided day at the crag.


Our winner and their guest will each receive:

1. A 5-day, all-access pass to the International Climbers’ Festival in Lander, WY on July 12-16, 2017 including two paid-for clinics and one privately guided day out.

2. Reimbursement for up to $1000 of travel costs (airfare, lodging, rental car, gas, food, etc)

3. $1000 of Outdoor Research apparel

4. Assorted climbing gear from other brands sponsoring the event


Here’s how to enter:

Simply post a climbing photo to Instagram this March and caption it with an answer to this question: Why do you love climbing? To be considered for the grand prize, posts must be shorter than 150 words and include #OutdoorResearch AND #SheAdventuresScholarship (or we won’t see it). We’ll look at every single post, pick the one that we find most inspirational, and announce our winner by May 5, 2017. The official rules and regulations can be found here. They're pretty boring.



Who can enter? Everyone is encouraged to participate in #SheAdventures, but only women in the US and Canada are eligible to win the grand prize. See the official rules for all the details.

Do I have to be a good climber? No. Anyone who has ever climbed is eligible. The grade you climb at won’t play a major role in our selection of a winner and the International Climbers’ Festival offers something for all levels of climbers.

Do I have to enter the contest through Instagram? Yes. #SheAdventures is native to Instagram and it cleanly consolidates all the contest entrees into one place for us to evaluate. The Instagram app is available on any smartphone.

What kind of photo should I post? The photo you post should reflect your written answer in that it shows something you love about climbing. Consider selecting your photo after answering the written prompt. You may use an oldie or take a new photo specifically for the contest.

What dates should I keep in mind? Post your entry on Instagram between March 1-31, 2017. The winner will be announced by May 5, 2017.

How many times can I enter? One entry per person, please.
