Edinburgh International Climbing Arena

Europe’s largest indoor climbing arena is just minutes from Edinburgh. Experience an adrenaline high as you explore and challenge yourself on the hundreds of climbing routes at EICA: Ratho. You don’t need to stick to climbing the walls either - there are rocks for bouldering in the centre of the arena and a separate bouldering room. The climbing fun doesn't stop there. New for 2016 is Clip 'n Climb - challenge yourself, challenge your friends in our exciting and colourful indoor adventure playground with 15 climbing elements providing a range of features and levels suitable for children and adults.

We're not just all ropes and rocks, children are welcome to play, bounce, scramble or climb in the Rock Tots playroom or Scrambles softplay area.  Or if you want to get down to business, we have conference facilities suitable for boardroom meetings to a grand reception hosted in one of the region's most unique venues.
