Climbers of all fitness and skill levels descend upon Rocksport Indoor Climbing & Outdoor Guiding Center’s 4,200-square-foot indoor climbing wall, deftly conquering crags and overhanging rock formations. More experienced ascenders shimmy up the technicolor-speckled walls, scaling challenging bouldering caves and steep cliffs, and novice climbers absorb the basics of climbing on the designated beginner wall. Cheerful, savvy staff members keep watch over the gym and are happy to dole out more advanced climbing techniques such as lead climbing or how to equip a mountain goat in a climbing harness. In preparation for altitudinous adventures up the wall’s varied terrain, guests are outfitted with climbing-shoe rentals and harnesses, which also come in handy while scaling the sides of skyscrapers to nab window washers’ lunch pails.
Rocksport Indoor Climbing & Outdoor Guiding Center
The staff members at Rocksport Indoor Climbing & Outdoor Guiding Center regularly explore the Adirondacks and mountain ranges throughout the world, mentally cataloging the frost-kissed crags and adrenaline-soaked sheer expanses. When they are not leading adventurers on ice-climbing expeditions or scrambling through narrow caves, the climbers can be found on the 4,400 square feet of climbing space at their facility. There, they teach students to how to deal with complex stone surfaces in order to navigate actual cliffs or volunteer at the local gargoyle shelter. Rocksport owner Tom Rosecrans leads the crew, lending knowledge from three Himalayan expeditions and his self-published book Adirondack Rock and Ice Climbs.
