CRUX LGBTQIA Climbing – Monday Night Pride Climb @Movement LIC

June 10 @ 6:00 pm

Loading Events

It’s Pride Month! Let’s take a night to hit the gym together, then socialize after!

Is this for me?
This event is geared towards people who know how to climb & belay, and want to meet other LGBTQ+ climbers. Never climbed before? Please join us for one of our New Climber Nights every Third Friday of the month!

CRUX events are non-competitive and for all body shapes/sizes.

 

Venue: Movement LIC (formerly The Cliffs LIC)
You will need to fill out the gym’s waiver for your first visit. Do so ahead of time here: https://movementgyms.com/participant-agreement/.

When you arrive at the front desk, let the staff know that you are here for the CRUX event and whether you need rental gear. They will point you to the CRUX hosts.

 

Accessibility
The main climbing area is on the ground floor. The second level bouldering and workout areas have stairs.

 

Changing Rooms & Lockers
There are gendered locker rooms with restrooms. You are welcome to use the locker room of your preference. Bring your own lock for valuables or you can rent them from the front desk. Cubbyholes for stashing non-valuables are throughout the climbing areas. There is also a non-gendered changing room in the retail merchandising area.

 

Cost
$15 for a facility day pass which includes rental gear (shoes and harness). You will pay this directly to Movement when you check in at the front desk.
Please email info@climbcrux.org if you need financial assistance to attend.
Movement Gym Members: Just scan your Movement membership card or use a punch card. There are no additional costs to attend our event.

Event Flow
CRUX event hosts will be milling about the couches behind the snack stand. You should see a large banner and LGBTQIA flags. Hosts will be the person who looks like they know what’s going on 🙂 You’ll usually see them greeting others and handing out nametags.
Climbing from 6:00 – 9:00(ish) PM. Some members climb later and do workouts/stretches afterwards, so ask around if you’re a nightowl! We expect most people will be top roping or lead climbing, but don’t be shy if you’re a boulderer! Either grab a harness or ask if someone wants to boulder with you.
Food, drink, socializing after 9:00 PM – We will head somewhere local to eat, drink and chat! Hosts will spread the word on the post-climb spot, but if you don’t hear just ask a fellow CRUXer or the event host.
We’re going to have a ton of fun! See you at Movement LIC!
