About Us

Crag X is a downtown climbing gym started by dirt bag climbers in 1995.

After trying to get it right for more than a decade and a half we moved downtown to try and get it right in our own building. We focus on quality setting for soulful climbing. When we teach newcomers, we try to show them why we love climbing, not just how to manage the safety gear. We love being a place for friends to hang out and for a community to spend time together. We still try every day to get it right.
