Climbing High

15_CRUX08Come rain or shine, heat or cool, hard core camp climbers have access to fun and challenging routes.  Pok-O-MacCready’s CRUX Climbing Center is open year round, not only to ca15_CRUX07mpers, but school groups, group parties and individual climbers.

During summer camp, it’s a popular quiet getaway for campers to work on their skills during class time and section activities.  “It’s fun, and has good climbing challenges for me,” says Kara F, a Highlander who does a fair amount of climbing throughout the year at home.

Kara is actually one of the exceptions to the rule; for most campers “this is the perfect opportunity to try something new,” according to Spencer Aronstein, who started rock climbing as a camper at Pok-O, and now instructs at The CRUX.  “It provides the perfect mental and physical puzzle.”


Here is what some of the other camper climbers think about The CRUX:15_CRUX01

“So many different things to do:  Bouldering, slack line; walls.”  – Abe

“At the end, you ‘zip’ down”  – Hunter

“I like it because I get to rock climb indoors.  My favorite is the 40-foot climb.” –Kate C

“It’s fun going really high in the air.”  –Matteo

Modern, clean and with music playing, The CRUX provides a great environment for campers to learn, improve, and prepare for some climbs on real rock walls.  To learn more, or book your own trip, go to:
