The Gravity Vault Indoor Rock Gyms have been serving Long Island’s community since 2005. Founded by Lucas Kovalcik and Tim Walsh, the duo built their first location in Upper Saddle River, NJ, and grew the programming options to include memberships, private climbing sessions, birthday parties, camps, competitive climbing teams, belay classes and more.



In 2013 The Gravity Vault Indoor Rock Gyms took the next steps, bringing rock climbing to local communities everywhere through franchising, opening its first franchisee owned and operated facility in Middletown, NJ. Continuing their efforts to bring the sport of rock climbing to local communities everywhere, The Gravity Vault is working to open facilities in states spanning the East Coast with additional locations to open on the Island.
