Ratho, Edinburgh

Edinburgh International Climbing Area
Note: Bring a long rope!

The Edinburgh International Climbing Area incorporates perhaps the largest climbing arena in the world, offering hundreds of routes up to 28m and catering for novice up to grade 8b climbers. Extensive bouldering and training facilities too.

This incredible facility includes the only covered climbs on natural rock anywhere in the world, and is expected to draw climbers and competitors to its events and climbs from Europe and beyond.

The walls provide teaching and training areas for rock climbing in all its forms (including World Cup competition), and will cater for climbers of all abilities - from beginners through to elite competitors.
