Simple, show people climbing. Rock, ice, glacier, or your solo climb up City Park for the sponsors. Sorry, leave your pictures from bouldering at the gym at home; you’re alpinists for goodness sake.


This has been a truly unique climbing year and we want to see your funny socially distanced photos.

Mountain Scene

Any picture that displays the great alpine vistas we can never get enough of.


This category is for all those miscellaneous pictures you take along the way on your climb such as the grove of alpine flowers, the marmot that tried stealing your food, or the mysterious looking forest you walked through during your approach.


Share the pictures of your friends you went climbing with or the people that you met along the way during your adventure.


Pretty self explanatory, your best sunrise, sunset or star pictures taken in the mountains.
