Outdoor friendly, friendly people, NOLS, small and fairly unspoiled
Ocassional loud midnight Main St. drag racing
In a nutshell
Cozy, little, original, interesting, gateway to the wilderness
The Lander Bar shares the Coulter Block with the Gannet Grill and Cowfish Restaurant. We went there after dinner and enjoyed some really good microbrews from the Snake River Brewery - a porter and the excellent Organic Trail Ale. The place wasn't that busy but livened up a little when a local started singing and playing his guitar. This didn't appear to be an official part of the evening's entertainment - he obviously just enjoyed music and wanted to share!
The Bar's website says:
"Located in the historic Coalter Block building, built in 1907, the Lander Bar blends drinks, people, and cultures. The decor is an eclectic mix of all things Western: ranching, climbing, mining, hunting, and Native American memorabilia adorn the walls and ceilings. Even more interesting than the decorations are the people."
Sounds more or less accurate to me!
Dress Code: If there was a dress code it wasn't obvious - it's a pretty casual place!

Sinks Canyon State Park has a ton of great rock climbing, from beginner to expert levels of difficulty. The location is gorgeous, so even if you get there and don't feel like climbing, you won't be wasting a minute. We even saw a rattlesnake on the trail up to the climb. The spot I climbed at was high up and overlooking the whole park and it just a perfect place to hang out and climb and enjoy the surroundings.
Equipment: We just did some afternoon sport climbing, so we had harnesses (actually, I didn't have my own, so I used webbing to make one), rope, and maybe 10-15 quickdraws. There was a ton of climbing and different routes and such there though, so it just depends on what you want to do. I didn't see any multi-pitches, but there might be some. Get the Sinks Climbing guide at the park or in town at Wild Iris, it has all the climbs and lots of information.
