Crux had the privilege of sponsoring our first of many Adventure Campaigns this year: "#Rainier20Twelve" - rainier20twelve.com. This particular adventure was an expedition to summit Mt. Rainier (14,411 feet) near Seattle WA. The climb was dedicated to helping the families of fallen park rangers in Mt. Rainier National Park.
Crux is all about creating positive change. We're also all about adventure. Naturally, we loved the opportunity to create some change through adventure. View our growing watch selection at cruxwatches.com
