Opened in 1998, Niagara Climbing Center is a top-tier indoor climbing location in western New York. The center encompasses more than 6,000 square feet and is the only full-service rock climbing gym in the Buffalo and Niagara Falls area.

The gym has 30 top rope stations, and each station is more than 20 feet high. The walls feature several obstacles like roofs, bulges and top outs, and the hand and foot holds on the walls are constantly rearranged for variety. The routes are always designed to accommodate climbers of all experience levels, and the gym has a professional, trained staff and friendly community of climbing enthusiasts to help improve climbers’ skills.

The center is open seven days a week and offers several group rates for special events. The center also makes a special rock climbing merit badge course available specifically for Boy Scouts. In addition to the main facility, the center delivers a portable climbing wall that is 24 feet tall. This portable wall can hold two climbers at a time and is suitable for climbers of all ages. Customers can rent the wall for a variety of functions like corporate outings, school and church events, and grand openings, to name a few.
