Climbing and Rock Sports

Up, up and away. Climbing and bouldering are fantastic full body workouts, and they're not just for adrenaline addicts. 

The massive, indoor climbing arena at EICA: Ratho offer hundreds of different routes, suitable for all levels from beginner to elite, on many different features including slabs, grooves, arêtes, vertical walls and overhangs of all angles including horizontal roofs. 

At all levels, you can build strength, improve flexibility, and exercise just about every muscle in your body. Climbing helps mental fitness too – it’s brilliant for de-stressing, as well as building confidence and focus.

Climb walls that range in height from a friendly 6 metres up to 28 metres high on a variety of routes from very achievable Grade 3 to expert level Grade 7 and 8. The impressive arena boulders and the bouldering room have boulder challenges ranging from a very easy V0 to a formidable V15.

If you're already an experienced and competent climber and pass a quick safety assessment, you can come in and climb without needing to book a session. Children under the age of 14 must be supervised by an adult and experienced and competent climbers aged 14 to 17 years may be able to climb unsupervised on successful completion of a pre booked 60 minute assessment course.

Instructors and courses are here to get you started or take you to the next level and all equipment is available for hire. What are you waiting for?
