Crux Climbing Center
South Austin, TX
Specs: A new 6,000-square-foot building will be added to the pre-existing Crux property located on Pickle Road in Austin, Texas. The new building will build on the gym’s fitness offerings and include new weightlifting and strength and conditioning amenities. The new building will also include a sauna. The total expanse of the gym will thus be 28,000 square feet and include walls for lead and top rope climbing, bouldering, as well as additional areas such as a yoga studio, locker rooms, a kids’ area, and “co-working space.” An outdoor area for community events and additional parking spaces will also be part of the renovation.
Walls: Vertical Solutions
CRM Software: Rock Gym Pro
In Their Words: “We are proud to offer a premier space for world-class climbers to train, compete and network, but Crux has always been so much more than a climbing gym. Our members and visitors range from recreational climbers to die-hard yogis to families looking for a fun, healthy activity for their kids. Expanding our space to accommodate our eclectic community will not only meet the needs of our growing membership, but offer fresh experiences to Austinites of all fitness levels.” —Kevin Goradia, founder/CEO
