The Climbing Festival is set for July 13-14 and the new climbing gym is scheduled to open May 1 at 1930 North Ave. Both the festival and the gym are being brought to Spearfish by High Mountain Outfitters, which caters to rock climbers, as well as hikers, campers, paddlers and all outdoor enthusiasts.

Owner Justin Stephens said the new climbing gym will be the first full-service indoor climbing facility in western South Dakota.
