Tired of waiting around for the crowds at Stronghold? Not challenged by the short, overrated routes at Chinook CCC? Wanna try out the TALLEST gym in Calgary (and one of the tallest in North America)? Come climb at The Crux! Only $10 for Industry people (Alpine Club, CEC, ACMG, MEC Employees)!

We will meet as a group in the area by the front sofas. If you come in late, look for me climbing. If you have not done the belay test before, please see the section titled Belay Test.

Belay Test
In order to gain entry to the gym, you need to pass a FREE belay test. This belay test must be done at The Crux - tests at other gyms will not be honoured. The belay test requires technical knowledge of climbing basics. It is a TEST of your grasp of this knowledge and is not something that you can fake, "wing", or hope for the best on if you have not climbed or have not climbed in a long time: you will not pass. Please note that club members are unable (not permitted) to provide instruction. The solution - if you are new to climbing or need a refresher - is to first go to any gym in the city and they can provide a basic lesson to get you started. Feel free to join us after you've made this initial step!
Please pass your belay test prior to this event.
