About Crux Rock Gym
Climb at Our Eugene Rock Gym!
Since 1994, Crux Rock Gym has offered a unique twist on working out for exercise enthusiasts of all kinds. Indoor sport climbing is an excellent form of exercise, but just as important: climbing is fun! If words like “fun,” “exhilarating,” and “challenging” don’t define your workout, maybe it’s time you learn to climb! Our Eugene rock gym is the perfect place to do it.
Crux Rock Gym is located in Eugene, Oregon, in the Whiteaker area, or as we like to call it, the “Fit Whit.” It’s close to downtown Eugene and just a 12 minute bike-ride from the University of Oregon campus. Our Eugene rock gym is designed to accommodate all ages and skill levels, from novices to experienced climbers. We hold regular “special nights” for women, students, and gym members, along with clinics for special interests, such as bouldering, lead climbing, etc. We love kiddos here, too! We have plenty of activities for children and we host birthday parties!
At Crux, you’ll find 9,000 square feet of climbing walls, including aretes, roofs, overhangs, bouldering caves, many low angles, and leadable routes featuring two Entre Prises Imprint Panel Systems and one Entre Prises Imprint Panel bouldering area. Don’t forget about our 30 rope stations (18 of which are leadable) and three bouldering areas for solo workouts. The Crux also includes full weight training, cardiovascular training, and locker and shower room facilities.
To assure that our climbers have a safe-and-sound climbing adventure at Crux, our experienced staff frequently performs complete safety inspections. We inspect all anchors, ropes, draws, carbiners, lead bolts, fasteners, and belay devices. Any equipment that does not pass at 100% is immediately replaced.
As an additional safety feature, and to make everyone’s climbing easier, we use fixed grigris. For those of you who haven’t used one, a grigri is a belay device, made by Petzl, that greatly improves climbing safety because it locks when tension hits the rope.
Our route-setting is among the best in the nation. Our experienced route-setters set a wide variety of routes so that climbers of all skill levels may enjoy climbing at Crux; and they frequently change those routes so climbers have more fun and a greater challenge. Our many beginning and intermediate routes, 5.8 to 5.10, plus our complex routes for super-climbers, make rock climbing at Crux accessible to and fun for all climbers.
Do drop in and experience our cool rock climbing facilities! You’ll fall in love with our Eugene rock gym!
