    Would it be possible to do something like an advice column, where questions from readers are discussed/answered?

    You’re the only site that discusses anything really interesting going on without being too strongly biased (i.E. you’re approaching potentially sensitive topics and you’re delivering your opinion without crossing into super-feminist or Michael Moore territory). This is a really hard balance to strike, and you’re the only ones who do it in the climbing industry. Keep delivering this. But write longer pieces. Get more in depth. Keep hitting these points in your interviews.

    Good job. 100%.

      Thank you so much Beverly! This is really wonderful to hear because it’s something we truly strive for. We want Crux Crush to be a mature place for discussion, where everyone can safely express their opinions.
      Thank you also for the feedback on the length of our posts. It’s always helpful to know what our readers want.
      Climb on!

    Not sure what the best way would be to organize this, but it would be really fun to meet up with other crux crush readers in my area (I’m in Seattle, which is, sadly, pretty far from you ladies).

    Keep up the great work! Love what y’all are doing here.

      Thanks for the feedback Jane!
      We’ll brainstorm how to make that a possibility. Clinics and workshops could be one way or some kind of meet up through a local gym? We’ll start thinking!

    I appreciate your inclusion to the trans community in your survey, but have never seen any mention of trans climbers on your site. Do you have any connection/representation to the community? I feel like there are many trans people in the climbing community due to its openness however we are frequently under represented in many settings

      We have partnered with Crux Climbing (http://www.climbcrux.org/) at the Iron Maiden Competition in Everett, MA.
      We would love to feature guest posts by trans climbers, and we have reached out to people to do so but we haven’t haven’t gotten any submissions yet. If you or someone you know would like to discuss guests posts we’d be psyched to hear your ideas.
      Thanks!

    i really love this site and appreciate all that you ladies are doing! that being said, i would love to see and hear more from women of color who are climbers. there are plenty of black and brown women who climb, but we are terribly underrepresented just about everywhere, even on sites that want to be empowering for women.

    it would be really great if there could be more guest posts by and articles about non-caucasian female climbers…or even just featuring more photos that celebrate the diversity of women who climb. i think that this may help women of color feel welcome in the climbing community, rather than looking through the pictures that most sites post and thinking, “well, maybe this isn’t for me.”

    thanks for all you do!

      Hi Midge!
      Thank you for the feedback. We would love to feature more women (and men) of color on Crux Crush and have content addressing diversity in the climbing community. If you or anyone you know is interested in contributing a piece on this topic please email us at cruxcrush(at)gmail(dot)com.
      Thanks for reading and supporting CXC!

    Just wanted to say I am an early follower of the site, and I have continued to get the fuzzies at the kind community in the comment section and the very interesting/relevant/PSYCHED content. Excited to see what you guys have got up your sleeves! 🙂

    • Mary says:

      Thank you so much! We are so glad you like what we’re putting out there. We’ll do our best to keep it coming =)

    I agree with much of what above pOsters have said. I am a queer black male who likes to read this site. It would be cool to have a wider array of both female and gender queer and trans voices here (wider than the mostly cis, white female voices). This also seems like a good space to give people of color, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, a platform to be heard within the climbing community. I was surprised when the survey did not ask about race or sexual orientation.
