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!

Albany's Indoor Rockgym will be extending our hours February 19th-23rd for the upcoming school break. We will be open starting at 10am!

Don't let the winter blues keep you down! Come climb with us and get UP in the air!

A.I.R. Age Policy:

Any child under the age of 10 MUST be accompanied by an adult/guardian in a one to one ratio as part of our safety requirements. The accompanying adult will not be charged if only present in helping to belay a child. 



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.





Includes 3 hours of rock climbing and caving. Shoes and harness rentals included. *Participants under the age of 10 must still adhere to the "one to one ratio" of parent to child.* Participants under 18 years old must have a waiver form filled out and signed by THEIR parent or guardian.
*Please note that a $50 non-refundable deposit is recommended to hold the date and time (which will be deducted from the final group cost). Parties can reschedule with no additional fees.
