In 1994, Crux Rock Gym introduced Eugene to the sport of indoor rock climbing. In doing so, we wanted to make sure our gym was a place where beginning and experienced climbers could have a great time and call “home” – a space with a cool neighborhood vibe that would also withstand the test of time.

Knowing that we couldn’t do it on our own, we looked no further than Entre Prises USA, operated by our friend and sport climbing guru, Alan Watts. It was there we met climbing gym designer and climbing advocate, Jeff Ellington. Shortly after, Jeff introduced us to local climber and builder, Peter Fralick, who with his brother, Chris, established many outdoor routes, including Sibling Rivalry and Barad-Dur.

Together (without the internet) we designed and built Crux Rock Gym! Much has changed in our gym since that time, but our original goal is still the same. We are deeply moved by climbing stories, awesome friendships, families and partnerships that have been forged within these walls. We are proud of our big family.
