Edinburgh International Climbing Area
Bring a long rope!
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.
