Rock climbing, anyone?

By Amy Brozio-Andrews


Gift certificates for indoor rock climbing at Albany's Indoor Rock Gym.

Who is it for?

Anyone who's climbing the walls -- or would be, if it weren't so cold outside. There are overhangs, floor-to-ceiling climbs, and even across-the-ceiling climbs. You can do indoor caving too.

Where can you get it?

Albany's Indoor Rock Gym at 4C Vatrano Rd., Albany, NY 12205. Call (518) 459 7625 for more details.

How much?

Admission is $12 and equipment rental (needed for climbing only, not caving) is an extra $6.50 ($18.50 total). This covers you for an all-day adventure. Private lessons are available for $55 per hour (add $30 for two participants) and that includes equipment rental. You can also buy monthly memberships or multi-visit punch cards. You can find a complete pricing guide here.
