For queer people of all genders who are femme, feminine-of-center, butch/stud, or have feminine gender expressions. New climbers welcome!

Organized by CRUX LGBTQIA+ Climbing


The Cliffs at Gowanus

242 Butler Street, Brooklyn, NY 11217

Join us for our monthly Wednesday events!

We welcome queer people of all genders who self-identify along the spectrum of Femme, Butch/Stud, feminine-of-center, or those who have feminine gender expressions. This event is geared towards people who have never climbed before, haven’t climbed in a long time, and experienced, belay-certified climbers.

Venue: Movement Gowanus
You will need to fill out the gym’s participant agreement for your first visit. Do so ahead of time here: https://thecliffsclimbing.com/participantagreement

All levels are wheelchair accessible. Ask a Cliffs staff member to elevator assistance.

Changing Rooms & Lockers
There are gendered locker rooms with restrooms, as well as universal, individual restrooms with space to change clothes. 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.

NON-MOVEMENT-MEMBERS (Third Wednesdays): $15 for a day pass which includes rental gear (shoes and harness). You will pay this directly to Movement when you check in at the front desk.

If cost presents a barrier for participation, please allow us to assist: https://forms.gle/DdtKkWi3gWHZsY1R9

MOVEMENT MEMBERS: Just scan and enter. There is no additional cost for attending our events. If you have an guest pass you won’t be using that month, consider donating it to a non-member.

Climb Time
CRUX event hosts will be present to help you get started. You will see a table with LGBTQIA flags and name tags. Please write your name and pronouns on your name tag and affix it to your top. We’ll do a round of intros about 10 minutes after start-time.

For Wednesday evenings, we might pop around the area for some food and drinks. We’ll spread the word before the event ends.
