Idaho State University’s Pocatello Pump rock-climbing competition is celebrating its 25th year on Sept. 16 and 17 on the basalt cliffs of Pocatello’s Ross Park.
“Pocatello Pump, in its 25th year, is the longest-running climbing competition in America,” said Peter Joyce, Pump director and ISU outdoor recreation coordinator. “I attribute its success to the fun the staff has putting it on, as well as the fun the climbers have participating in it.”
The Pump will run from 8 a.m. to early afternoon Saturday, Sept. 16. The Pump takes most of the afternoon off so participants can take advantage of the CW HOG Pig Out Dutch oven dinner adjacent to the climbing area.
Climbing resumes Sunday, Sept. 17, at 7 a.m. The awards ceremony is at 6 p.m.
