The Illinois Climbers Association is currently planning the next annual Holy Boulders bouldering competition. Please contact us if you are interested in being a sponsor or volunteer.

Nestled on a Southern Illinois hillside, the Holy Boulders is a world-class bouldering area offering classic lines of all grades on perfectly textured sandstone.  Help us raise the remaining $74,000 to ensure access to future generations while testing your skills on some of the finest boulders in the country.  Last year was the first year the ICA held this competition as the sole owners and managers of the Holy Boulders. We are very honored to be bestowed with such a great task. We feel confident that with the help of our outstanding climbing community, we will be able to repay the remaining $74,000 of the AF's loan in record time.
