Our Additional Support Needs (ASN) Soft Play Session for children runs every Thursday from 3:30pm – 5:00pm. We are wanting to allow a comfortable, relaxed, and safe environment so that children who need additional support can learn and grow their confidence.

EICA Ratho is a fully accessible venue for all, with ramp access, an internal lift, disabled toilets, changing and showers.

There are no restrictions to members or pay as you go customers. If you are already a soft play member with us then you can come along at no extra cost, or if you are a non-member then you can buy a pass at reception.

Level up your climbing. Track all your climbs. Enter competitions. Compete against yourself, your friends or even the pros. Benchmark, train & improve using smart hangboards, custom workouts and training routines. 

Our route setters set routes and boulders and tag each route/boulder with appropriate coloured Smart tags. 

Smart Tags are programmed to contain details of the route/boulder, Beta/Style/Line details/Setter details and the date the route is set. Climbers can scan the tags before climbing to see route details or after climbing to log it as done. 

Points are awarded for the leader board score. Be part of the climbing community!
