Standing at one of Pok-O-MacCready’s highest elevations is its loftiest building:  The Crux.  The year-round rock climbing center has now been in operation for a decade and remains one16Crux11 of camp’s most popular spots.

“We have from four to eight campers for each of the ten periods,” said summer climbing coordinator Chantal Gilliland.  “There’s a wide range of skill levels, but also a wide range of climbs to test them.”

Cara has been rock climbing at Pok-O for seven summers, and she is also an avid climber at home.  “It’s smaller than some of the places,” Cara says of the Crux, “but it still has a lot of climbing.  There are many different routes, and it’s still challenging with some hard climbs.”

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

See more in the images below.  The Crux is open to the public during select summer hours, and full-time the rest of the year.  More info at:  www.climbthecrux.com
