Albany's Indoor Rockgym


Your facility looks incredible. Our kids love rock climbing. Unfortunately your policies make it so larger families can never attend. 😞 maybe in several years...
THE CAVES WERE SO COOL!! wish I could retroactively have all my bday parties here. I will definitely return esp thanks to our rock climbing lesson. Highly recommend :)
Glad you guys had fun and thanks for the nice pictures!

First (time) & 5 yrs old... looking like pro ❤

Designed and staffed with training towards outdoor rock climbing in mind, A.I.R. has been providing friendly and engaging service for over 25 yrs. Come in and enjoy bouldering, top roping or lead climbing or to try out our unique indoor cave system.

So the best way to Describe the Caves is hours of exploring the hidden treasures. You can find our 60 foot Zip line,cross the Tyrolean traverse, hang out in the cargo net, find the para-scope, and maybe get a little lost. Climbing or Bouldering, there are plenty of routes to try, and space to get creative. The limit to how you can climb is your imagination.
