Due to popular demand, The Crux has teamed up with Cloudsplitter Mountain Guide (and former Crux Director) Mark Scott to offer a series of climbing clinics to enhance your knowledge and prepare you for the world of outside climbing.
Mark will be offering 4 different clinics on Mondays in May. We encourage you to sign up for all 4, however we will also accept sign-ups for individual sessions.
Want to boost your outdoor climbing confidence? JOIN US! The goal of Crux Climbing Clinics is to better prepare participants for outdoor climbing and introduce them to the skills and concepts to be safer, more independent climbers.
Each clinic will be 2-3 hours long, starting at 5:30pm. $25/class or $80/all
