I am playing Pokémon X, and I want an Espeon on my team. I am curious if climbing the rockwalls in Cyllage City’s Gym counts towards steps for raising my Eevee’s happiness.

Probably not.
I think so.
Probably not. It’s climbing, not walking. Besides, why would you want to gain friendship through climbing? It’s so much faster to be on a bike.
Also by Cyllage City you already have the bike. And why are you playing such an old game in the first place?
Because I like to go back to games I haven’t played in a while and relive the experience, it’s just something I do for fun.
Also, I’m not asking because I plan on using the walls for happiness grinding, I’m asking because I’m curious.

I'm going to assume that taking steps to hatch an egg and taking steps to raise happiness are the same thing. I received a Ducklett egg in X then I rode my bike to the Cyllage Gym. It took a long time, and soon the egg hatched while I was climbing along the wall.

So, climbing the rock wall in the Cyllage Gym DOES count as taking steps
