    Cruxing in Color

    Cruxing in Color aims to connect, educate, and inspire self-identified climbers of color in the Denver area by organizing meetups and offering free mentorship and access to gear. We aim to foster representation at the crag and gym and break down the barriers that systematically keep people of color out of these spaces. Most of all, we hope to build a strong and safe community for folx to rely on.

Students’ innate character and leadership abilities further develop through outdoor experiences that expand horizons, increase confidence, and build collaboration skills. Through weekly after-school Outdoor Adventure Clubs, 150 middle school students are introduced to outdoor activities such as rock climbing, hiking, camping, and kayaking through bi-weekly sessions, and develop courage, confidence and resilience in mastering new skills.
