Event Details

About this event
Every third Friday is a CRUX night at The Cliffs!
This event is geared towards people who have never climbed before, haven't climbed in a long time, and experienced, belay-certified climbers who like to help others have a great first or return experience.

Venue: The Cliffs LIC
You will need to fill out the gym's participant agreement for your first visit. Do so ahead of time here: All COVID-19 procedures are outlined there.

The main climbing area is on the ground floor. The second level bouldering and workout areas have stairs.

Changing Rooms & Lockers
There are gendered locker rooms with restrooms. You are welcome to use the locker room of your preference. Bring your own lock for valuables or you can rent them from the front desk. Cubbyholes for stashing non-valuables are throughout the climbing areas. There is also a non-gendered changing room in the retail merchandising area.

$15 for a facility day pass (includes gear rental). Please email if you need financial assistance to attend.

For existing CRUX members, show your CRUX membership card to The Cliffs staff to get the day pass discount. If you are not yet a CRUX member and do not have a CRUX card, that's ok. Let the front desk staff know that you are here for the CRUX event.

If you're already a Cliffs gym member, just scan your Cliffs membership card or use a punch card. There are no additional costs to attend our event.

Climb Time
CRUX event hosts will be milling about the tall bistro table towards the center. You should see a large banner and LGBTQIA flags. Hosts will be wearing yellow or teal CRUX t-shirts, and wearing the rainbow-colored CRUX nametags on their harnesses.

Climbing from 6:30 – 9:00(ish) PM. Some members climb later and do workouts/stretches afterwards, so ask around if you're a nightowl!

Food, drink, socializing after 9:00 PM – After climbing a group usually heads to a local restaurant/bar for dinner and chit-chat. Hosts will spread the word on the post-climb spot, but if you don't hear just ask a fellow CRUXer or the event host.

We're going to have a ton of fun! See you at The Cliffs at LIC every third Friday!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No. However, evenings get crowded in the after-work peak and is not the best time for small children new to a dynamic event space. All minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

I'm part of an organization that would like to bring a group. Can we all register?

Please contact with info about your group before registering. This gives us an opportunity to ensure we can accommodate everyone.
