2 local options include:

1) CROC center has a nice (albeit a bit shorter than many) indoor wall. Google for address. Actually not a bad rainy day place to pump. $5 will get you in. Swim, lift, shoot hoops while you're there... great for people watching. I've never been before 7:30pm when it's reserved for adults each night of the week.

2) There is a retaining wall right next to a railroad track just south of downtown. its on the west side of the road where owens serves and turns into south river road. once you get past the trash and "general meth addict's hideaway" feel the place will initially provide you with it can be somewhat fun to navigate the concrete seams between basalt rocks. There are some areas where the masons really got their shit together and it makes for some very small edges and ledges for both the hands and feet. traverse the whole wall a time or two and your fingers will get their fix. bring a pad as the landing is quarry rock and you can top out at 20'ish in the highest parts if you want to.
