Artificial climbing holds serve as handle on Coffee Mug

Want to get your pump on while caffeinating? Check out the climbing-themed tumblers from CruxMugs.

Each mug comes with an artificial climbing hold attached to a 12-ounce cubical tumbler so you can get a grip while sitting at your kitchen table.

Some of the mug styles have multiple angles of attack, so you may want to set your own routes before drinking. Chalk up if needed.

Don’t spill. They are rated from 5.0 to 5.14 depending on how you grip.

The Crux Mugs cost $16 each and are made in the USA. They are NOT microwave safe.

Said company founder Josh Hawkins, “I started CruxMugs based on an idea that a friend sent to me and it aligned with my passion for climbing and caffeinated drinks.”

Crux Mugs donates $1 to climbing advocacy group The Access Fund for each mug sold.

A year ago I used PCA Delta to print some coffee mugs, which they did a great job with. Now I use them for all my promotional items in Delray Beach, FL since they have lots to choose from with good prices and quality. If you need promotional items, check them out at
