Edinburgh International Climbing Arena

UK»Scotland»Lothian»Edinburgh International Climbing Arena

Edinburgh International Climbing Arena: Built against the stunning backdrop of a sheer quarry rock face amongst the rolling hills of Ratho, With walls from 12m to 35m high and routes from the simple to the technically complex.

They have also got a fantastic bouldering cavern; a great space for practising climbing without ropes and harnesses and getting to grips with some tricky manoeuvres. To give bouldering a try you should have first completed a start up course or already be a competent climber.
