The 2015 Smuggs Ice Bash

Coming back for its 9th year, the Smuggs Ice Bash is one of the best events we host all year long. We’ll get things started with a Kickoff Party and Drytool Comp Friday Night at Petra Cliffs, energized by DJ Kanganade. The party starts around 6pm, $5 at the door.  We'll have drytooling demos on Foam Ice, drytool holds, and regular holds using Dry Ice tools by Furnace Industries. 

SMUGGS ICE BASH CLINICS are available for the total beginner to the seasoned climber seeking to push their limits on steep and technical routes. Demo Equipment from the best brands in the industry will be available all weekend long! Saturday Night will feature presentations by strong climbers and athletes-- Vermont bred beasts-- Alden Pellet and Will Mayo.

Make sure to follow the Smuggs Ice Bash on Facebook and Instagram (@thesmuggsicebash), and stay posted at!
