About Climb Upstate
The altitude fiends at Climb Upstate envision an alternative to a standard gym, where climbers of all skill levels can get fit and practice their vertical vernacular in their architect-designed indoor facility, which offers both monthly memberships and day rates. Climbers clamber through a simulated cave while perfecting their mole-people dialect or emulate a bouldering adventure on more than 100 feet of continuous scaling space. Numerous routes designed for every ability take advantage of the facility’s ample lean-back walls, 35 feet of roof climbing, and top-rope stations, two of which stretch all the way to the ceiling. Between ascents, guests may relax in the party space and catch screenings of climbing movies on a 42-inch flat-screen or dust off their chalky hands for a round of table tennis on the facility's ping-pong table.
