Update: 4/28 We know we are all excited to get back to climbing and training as soon as possible. However, gyms were not amongst the businesses that have been the go ahead to reopen this week. Once we do get this approval, we will take all safety precautions to reopen the gym on our time and with new precautions in place. We will not be hasty or casual about this. We want to continue to keep our staff, our members, and guests as safe as possible.

Update: 4/15 City officials have issued a shelter in place until May 8th, so we will not open until that is lifted and it is safe to resume business.

With all the questions, unknowns, and challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Crux believes we can all make responsible decisions to help slow down the spread of this virus. With that said, we have decided to do our part and will be closing the gym starting on Wednesday, March 18th until city official announce that it is safe to reopen. We will stay open for normal hours today and tomorrow to allow members and guests to clean out their lockers, get the necessary equipment from our gear store for at home training if needed/wanted, and field questions via phone.

Crux knows that in times like these it is important to have community and a place to de-stress, clear your mind, and move your body. However, we also have a responsibility to protect the health of our staff, members, and community as a whole and we strongly believe this is the right step to take.

During this time, our staff will be paid, as that is one of our goals through all of this, to take care of our family. This also includes our members (see below).


  • All monthly drafting memberships will receive a credit on the next billing cycle for the days we are closed in March.
  • If we are closed beyond March, we will suspend billing and only charge prorated dues when we are able to open again.
  • There will be no fees for freezing in March.
  • Paid-in-full membership expiration dates will extend the number of dates we will be closed.
  • There is no action needed to be taken by members to receive the credit or move paid-in-full dates.

Events, Classes, and Programs

  • All events will be postponed for the month of March.
