Crux is working with Catalyst sports to bring climbing to all. Join us on January 11th for Adaptive Climbing day followed by a viewing of Sterling Ropes’ Adaptive Film and free beer!
9AM – 12PM | Volunteer training with Catalyst Sports
1PM – 5PM | Adaptive Climbing
6PM | Adaptive Film by Sterling Rope
We can’t have this event without our volunteers! From working different systems to climbing along side someone, our volunteers will help make this day the best for all of our participants!
Catalyst Sports will spend the morning training our volunteers the ins and outs of adaptive climbing. You will learn different techniques, equipment, skills, and etiquette. Then, in the afternoon, you will get the chance to help our adaptive climbers climb!
No former experience needed to be a volunteer!
Come climb with us! We are so excited to have a chance to get everyone climbing. From those who have climbed with us before to those who have never climbed, we are excited to get you on the walls. Feel free to come at any time between 1-5 PM or come at 1 and stay for the whole time! No cost to come climb.
After a day of climbing and training we will be showing Sterling Ropes Adaptive Film featuring Jim Ewing – a Sterling Rope engineer and below-the-knee amputee – and professional climber, Maureen Beck – born without her left hand – as they attempt the first all-adaptive ascent of the über classic and deeply remote Lotus Flower Tower (5.10+) in Canada’s Cirque of the Unclimbables. As their adventure unfolds, we see that the ability to adapt is universal and a common thread that unites us.
