With its convenient location just off Central Avenue near Westgate Plaza, Albany's Indoor Rockgym has been helping climbers of all levels hone their skills since 1995. The gym's features were developed based on decades of outdoor climbing experience and offer a variety of technique-building opportunities. A.I.R. also has the nation's only indoor caving system, complete with half a mile of tunnels and a 60 foot indoor zipline!


Important A.I.R. Age Policy:

Please note that any child under the age of 10 years old must be accompanied by an adult in a ONE TO ONE ratio at all times while in our facility.

(this includes any children sitting in our waiting areas)

Parents are required to be the young child's belay partner when climbing and also accompany them into the caves. 

This is to ensure safety of both the  children and our other gym guests.

A.I.R. Age Policy:

Any child under the age of 10 MUST be accompanied by an adult/guardian in a ONE TO ONE child to parent ratio as part of our safety requirements. The accompanying adult will not be charged if only present in helping to belay a child. Please call us to clarify any questions regarding this policy. 

 

WE ACCEPT CASH, CHECKS & ALL MAJOR CREDIT CARDS

Admission for individuals is by full-day pass, and permits access to both the cave and the climbing walls. Equipment rental is likewise full-day, but is only necessary for climbing (not for caving). Basically, you pay one price up front and you can climb 'till we close. If you want, you can leave, get lunch, whatever, and come back; re-entrance is free for the rest of the day (for individuals only).

Please note that discounts are available both for groups and for purchasing passes in bulk (i.e. with punchcards or memberships). All prices include tax where applicable. Also, all membership offers and punchcards pertain to admission cost only, and not to equipment rental. Punchcards never expire and are transferable. Memberships are non-transferable.
