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?

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.
