Crux does not sponsor any climbers or "athletes". The fact is we simply cannot afford it.

However, this does not mean we do not work with and listen to a broad spectrum of users: mountain guides and instructors, hard climbers doing very scary stuff, and weekend climbers participating at more modest levels. Whilst it is nice to receive praise, we are no less interested in criticisms and complaints – and these are much more forthcoming when people have paid for their kit.

We do however offer a "Pro Deal" programme for professional outdoor people who are members of nationally recognised organisations – please click here.
