The Inner Wall is an indoor rock climbing facility located just outside the famous Shawangunk Ridge (The Gunks) in New Paltz, NY. Our customers include rock climbers and non-climbers of all ages and experience levels. Indoor  climbing involves the use of pre-set anchors, ropes and routes. With 4500 square feet of wall space and more than 100 climbing routes, The Inner Wall is quickly becoming a favorite climbing destination for residents of the Hudson Valley Region and visitors alike.


There are many methods of rock-climbing.  Some are done individually, others require a partner.  The most common method of indoor climbing is "Top-Roping" which requires two people.  Climbers under the age of fourteen (14) must be accompanied by a parent /guardian who is certified to manage the ropes (i.e. Belay Certified) or work with one of our qualified staff.  Individuals over the age of 14, may take our Belay orientation course or demonstrate their Belay ability to our satisfaction.  Staff belay is available with a 24 hour reservation.

In addition to "Top-Roping" The Inner Wall offers "Bouldering" and "Lead  Climbing".  We also offer Scout and corporate programs.  Check out the rest of our web site or visit us on Facebook.
