✨Meet the Staff✨
Say hey to Ariel, one our of front desk super stars and setting interns! Ariel has been working at Crux for over a year and loves everything about Crux, especially the community, friendships, and positivity of the place. He has been climbing for six years and his favorite place to climb is anywhere there is beautiful rock to climb with an emphasis on Rocky Mountain National Park. Outside of climbing you can find Ariel playing the bass guitar, cooking, and baking (he says, “yes, I can cook and bake.”). His favorite post send meal is a nice hot Mountain House meal and his favorite animal is the red tail hawk! When asked if there is anything else he’d like the good folks of Crux to know he said, “I got love for every single one of you guys!” Thanks for being great Ariel!


Attention friends, family, members, guests, those who run a 5k on Thanksgiving and those who don’t, next week our hours will look a little different. Make sure you’re aware so you don’t show up and are disappointed!

Happy Veterans Day to all Veterans and a special shout out to those on our Crux staff! 🇺🇸

Matt (Crux Instructor): Army and Air Force
Emma (Central Front Desk): Marines
Riley (South Front Desk): Navy

We appreciate you!


Hey students! We know balancing school and climbing can be difficult (let’s face it, we’d all just climb all the time if we could), but we hope to make it a little easier on ya!

We’ve got work space for studying, climbs for sending, AND we offer a student discount (on day passes, punch passes, and memberships)!


For the past three years Crux has been fortunate enough to support the non profit, Foster Angels. This group gathers Christmas lists from teenagers in the Central Texas foster system and helps get them those items for Christmas morning.

These lists are a rare opportunity for them to dream big and they get to actually ask for items they want and not need.

We know how generous and caring our community is so we thought we’d share the cause with y’all in case anyone would like to sponsor a teen (you can do it individually or with a group of your friends!). The Fosters Angels website (link in our story) has profiles with the teenager’s story and list.

We always have a fun time shopping for them (or you can donate the money and someone at Foster Angels will do the shopping) and knowing we are making someone’s Christmas.

Thanks for letting us share this special mission with you. Please reach out if you have any questions!


November 15th is Singles’ Night at South, but we’re still having Date night at Central! So grab your SO, friend, cousin, coworker, etc and come climb!


We'll say it so you don't have to, dating can really suck at times. If you're over swiping left or right, maybe it is time to meet someone the old fashioned way, in person doing something you both enjoy.

Join us for Singles Night at Crux South! Come climb, mingle, and maybe just maybe, meet the love of your life (or at least someone who you can hang with through the holiday season)!

If things are going well after the climb, head on over to our neighbors at to enjoy a beverage* and continue getting to know each other.

*Singles Night special: $15 beer and sandwich special or $1 off your beverage of choice!


Our Gym to Crag course, that we partner with Texas Climbing Adventures for, is changing to a lead class!

In this course, climbers will receive an Intro to Lead Climbing at Crux Climbing Center on a Monday, and will learn lead climbing techniques and terms. Then, within the same week on Sunday, the climbers will meet with Texas Climbing Adventure’s certified guide who will take them to the heart of Austin at the Barton Creek Greenbelt for an amazing outdoor lead climbing experience.

Sign up online or at the front desk!

Did you know our adaptive climbing program is called BETA which stands for “Be Empowered To Ascend” because we believe everyone should feel exactly that!

If you look up "humble warrior" on google, Matt's photo should pop up--if you know him you know what we mean. He is a steel mace artist who has a passion for coaching folks on proper technique. If you step foot into any of his classes, you're in for a technical trip--hearing all the best queings, getting all the best demos, and knowing that you have one of the best watching you move through it all. He's not only a steel mace master, but also a lover of all things kettlebell. If you want a thorough and inventive workout--go to Matt's class.

Catch him every Wednesday at South, pretty much all day. 12pm | 4:30pm | 5:30pm |6:30pm

As always, as some tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for this Crank’N’Stein. And, of course, the coffin will return. Climb into it, if you dare. ⚰️


Nothing too spooky, just a skeleton enjoying the shoes they won at Crank’N’Stein.

Skeletons don’t really need shoes though. So these could be yours this Saturday!
