What kind of rental equipment? Due to liability concerns, pretty much no one rents soft goods (ropes, harnesses, or webbing) or hard goods (biners, cams, nuts, etc.)

About the only rock climbing equipment you can rent in the states are helmets and climbing shoes.

Wilkes-Barre has a gym, maybe they can rent you shoes, or point you to someone who does. But in general, by the time people are climbing outside, they have their own equipment.

The guiding services would provide equipment to people they are guiding, but they wouldn't rent it out.
