We’re Hiring!

Crux Climbing Center is currently seeking a full-time routesetter (30+ hours/week).

Crux Climbing Center is Austin’s premier indoor climbing, bouldering, yoga and fitness facility, featuring 22,000 sq. ft. climbing gym. Overall, the space is geared for hosting large and high energy events with an enormous and completely configurable bouldering wall at the focus.

We are expanding into a second location in Austin, set to open early 2020. A 21,000 sq. ft. bouldering-only gym. The current plan is to have the hired individual move into the role of head routesetter of one of Crux’s locations once the new facility is operational. This is a great opportunity to move into a management role and gain experience setting for high-profile competitions!
