Edinburgh International Climbing Arena

We’ve missed you and are really looking forward to re-opening our doors and welcoming all our customers back to EICA. We’ve been overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from you all over the last few months, and we’re delighted to see that many of you have been remaining active whilst on lockdown. We’ve been working hard to ensure EICA remains a safe environment for all when they reopen.

We've been working hard to create a safe environment for you to enjoy and we've made some changes to how we do things, including: 

  • Increased cleaning and sanitisation
  • Physical distancing around the venue
  • Online booking and carefully scheduled activities to manage numbers and customer flow
  • Plastic shields installed at service points to protect you and our employees
  • Ensuring studio ventilation adheres to guidance

  • Sanitisation stations at entry/exit to all key areas
  • Personal workout areas
  • Limiting activities and facilities, for example our changing rooms are not open and we have limited the number of lockers that can be used
  • Specialist staff training
