Albany's Indoor Rockgym

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!
Enter to win the experience of climbing with Alex Honnold in Yosemite!
What an experience that would be!

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.

Temporarily closed

Some freshly painted walls, new vibrant-colored routes throughout the ENTIRE gym and some bonus health and safety features.

We are stoked to welcome you all back! Reopening date to be announced soon!

#indoorrockgyms #indoorrockcimbing #indoorclimbing #covid19activities #reopening #albany

We want to ensure we are 100% ready for you!

While gyms have been granted permission to reopen as of Monday, your health and safety is our #1 priority and we therefore have decided to remain closed at this time as we continue to work hard to make sure you will feel comfortable walking back through our doors. We will update you on our status once we pass the newly required Covid health inspection.

We hope to see your happy climbing faces soon!

"Going the (Social) Distance."

While this may have started off as part of an elaborate April Fools prank created by our friends at Rock and Ice to help lift our quarantine spirits, It clearly can still be used as an amusing way to kill some time while keeping up on your training! If anyone takes on this challenge, please share with us!

We WILL climb again! And in the meantime, here is how you not only can get yourself geared up to climb, but help out Albany's Indoor Rockgym in the process:

#climbers4gyms #butoraclimbingshoes

As of right now the decision to reopen climbing gyms is in the hands of Governor Cuomo. Like him, we too want to continue to keep the health and safety of everyone as our top priority.

We hope to see everyone again real soon! In the meantime, think happy climbing thoughts!

Keep yourself climbing-ready with these at home exercises!

Following the announcement of the closing of local school districts, A.I.R. will be closed from March 16th-29th. We feel it is our responsibility to help promote an adequate response to this issue at hand and with the close personal-contact filled nature of rock climbing and exercise facilities in general, the responsible decision in regards to health and safety is to temporarily close. This only helps to ensure a safe and clean climbing environment when we open again.

All memberships will have 2 weeks added to their expiration dates. We will also be working on helping to reschedule any groups originally set within this closure period.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone back at the gym in a few weeks; safe, healthy and ready for a summer of climbing!

Now, more than ever, is the time we need to be aware of how we can help stop the spread of germs. We as a business like to provide a fun, safe environment for all our guests and need your help to do so. If you are expressing any symptoms whatsoever, (coughing, sneezing, etc.), OR have come into contact with someone who has said symptoms, STAY HOME.

We are monitoring the situation closely and plan on making the best decision for our community as new information is received, but ultimately it is your responsibility to help keep others safe.

When you tell non-climbers you work at a "rock gym"...

It's never too early to start thinking about your summer plans! Climbing clinics available for children or adults, from beginners to climbers of experience. Check out our website at for more info.
