Join us for our bi-monthly Capital Region CRUX events at The Edge Half Moon!

All experience levels, bodies, and abilities welcome (pro tip: you don’t have to be “strong” to climb)! If it's your first time, don't worry - we'll help you climb your first walls, and there are routes set for all levels.

If you’re new and want us to keep an eye out for you, email

Venue: The Edge Halfmoon

Currently, The Edge asks you to book your spot here. You can also save yourself some time by filling out the gym waiver online before arrival.

When you check in at the front desk, let them know if (1) you need rentals, (2) you have never belayed before or (3) you need a belay refresher from their staff.


Belay lesson and climbing on 1st floor, with a short step up to the climbing area mat. Some individuals in the group are adaptive climbers or have experience climbing with people with physical disabilities. However the gym has not yet made significant investments in adaptive equipment, such as a seated climbing rig. If you have questions about what is available and how we can best support your needs, please reach out.

Changing Rooms & Lockers

1st floor gendered, multi-user, wheelchair-accessible restrooms with stalls and semi-open changing areas. Closest known all-gender restroom is 1 mile away at Stewarts.


$20 day pass and rental package. If a free pass would make a difference in your ability to attend, we’ve got you covered: don’t book yet, contact

Climb Time

The gym is rarely busy during this afternoon session, so it's a great opportunity to get to know the group. Come with climbing partners, or let us help you connect with others. You can boulder, top-rope, or lead climb - the choice is yours! (And if you don't know what those terms mean, we'll help you out)
