This is a question for those in Las Cruces, NM and El Paso, TX and people familiar with the surrounding area.

If a new climbing gym were to open up in Las Cruces, how do you think it would do?

I'm interested to hear people's thoughts.

It's been many years since I lived in LC, but when I did, there was an absolute dearth of climbers. Unless things have really changed a lot, I wouldn't expect a gym to do well. But you never know. I always ran into more El Paso and Albq climbers than anything else...

Maybe not that helpful, but I tried...

I am assuming you are aware of this little gym at NMSU?

Yes I know of the gym on campus. I think the bouldering population is growing here because of the college. Other styles not growing as much, but still present.

I'm currently researching market interest and business models. Ive made it a goal to open one here. I don't have anything solid yet, but am willing to share collaborate. Pm me.

 I'm moving out there for medical school in the fall. A new medical school just opened up out there last year, so a lot of new students will be headed that way. I know of myself and a handful of other students who are climbers and we are wondering where we are going to climb. I would 100% love to see a climbing gym pop up there. I believe that I will do really well, for some reason doctors love to climb LOL.

The best climbing gym in the LC area is, of course, the Organs.  Doesn't get any better than that.  It does get taller, though.

Just moved to the area and would love to see a small bouldering gym for after-work sessions. 

Also, anyone looking for a weekend climbing partner: let me know.
