It seems everyone is still off celebrating the 4th of July weekend, so we are going to cancel this month’s ABP Meet Up. We’ll see you on the first Sunday of August. Stay cool out there!
Come climb with your friends. Wear your team shirt. Have fun.
Crux is hosting a Clean the Crag Day at Gus Fruh park. Belinda Roberts, Jonah Coleman’s mom, is planning to head out there with her family. Here are the details.
We're lucky here in Austin to have climbing so easily accessible to us, but let's face it, sometimes those crags get a little messy. Join us, along with Austin Parks Foundation, on Saturday, June 1st as we show our local crags a little love. Petzl will also be having a helmet demo, so who knows, maybe some climbing will follow?!
Meet at the Gus Fruh trail head at 9:00AM for coffee provided by High Brew Coffee and we will head down shortly after.
Bring your own garden/utility gloves for trash pick up - trash bags will be provided.
All climbers MUST be in Iso by the time it closes or they will not be allowed to climb. Climbers are not allowed in the gym prior to their climbing session.

Most meals are included except for travel days and rest days. Max number of participants will be set at 10 and the minimum number of participants needed will be 4.

- Sleeping bag and sleeping pad
- Personal toiletry items and towel
