Decided to catch up on my reviews on my flight home from Austin! What better time than when you’re stuck in the middle seat haha
Crux was a really cool gym. The facility was big with all the modern amenities you’d expect from a new gym. There was a lot of wall space with pretty good angles. They have this ‘cave’ room that I did not love, but I could see it having some interesting problems.
One of the coolest wall features I’ve ever seen was their‘comp wall’. It huge, wide, and changeable! I don’t know the specifics behind how they change it, but it sounds like it’s modular with changing angles. They alter the entire wall once a year.

The walls were textured which is a thumbs down, but it wasn’t the worst texture I’ve yet to encounter. They used screw-on holds on volumes, but not the wall itself from what I saw. The setting quality was good,mostly really solid climbs with a few OK ones. The grading was a little soft in my opinion, but still enjoyable!
The problem density is something I found low. Even though they are monochromatic, there was ample space to fit in more problems. Take advantage of the wall space you paid for!
They had a great workout area with lots of climbing specific equipment as well as pretty much every ‘standard’ thing you’d expect to see.
I met some cool dudes at Crux and I look forward to climbing with them again should I find myself back in their neck of the woods!
