Will Gadd came out to boulder with us for the day and then gave a presentation that evening.  What an awesome guy! 
The Gear Demo at Weber State.  Black Diamond, Petzl, Evolv, The Front Ogden, and a bunch of other sponsors showed up with their gear for people to try out.
Ogden Outdoor Adventure proprietor and radio host Brandon Long with Beth Rodden.  Beth came and taught us how to make salsa.  The baby is a little star struck.  She gave a great presentation the next night.
2011 climbing comp was inside at The Front Ogden due to snowy weather.  There was a good turnout.  Hannah here was one of the many hard women to compete.
Jed Lowe showing the rest how steep climbing is done.  Don't remember if he won or not.  He usually does.

Here's a video of last year's climbing festival:
