Hey Climber!

Please join us for our monthly CRUX event at Central Rock Gym!  CRUX will meet at CRG to boulder together and then those who are interested can grab food and beverages nearby. If it’s your first time climbing or bouldering, don’t worry! We’ll help you climb your first walls! CRG staff will give you a little primer on bouldering and there are routes set for all levels! It’ll be great! If you’re not new to climbing, don’t worry! There are a bunch of high overhung routes to delight you as well as all levels down to VB on slab.

Venue: Central Rock Gym-Manhattan
