Alaska Rock Gym

4840 Fairbanks Street
Anchorage, AK 99501


About Us

The gym was opened in August of 1995, after a group of 4 local climbers decided to build a climbing gym so we would have a place to train for our climbing trips to the lower 48 and Europe. We never really envisioned that the business would ultimately take off the way it has - we were just climbers that wanted an indoor climbing gym in our city.

The belief that indoor climbing is a sport for everyone has been our over-riding philosophy from the very beginning. We wanted the gym to feel welcoming to all and be a place for everyone; from beginning climbers, kids, etc to the very elite of the sport. We believe that indoor climbing is a great way to not only gain strength and conditioning, but to also challenge your self and overcome fears and inhibitions. It is a great way for teens and adults to participate in not only the movement of climbing up the wall, but also the aspects of team and leadership through belaying and working with a partner.
