Summer Holiday Climbing at EICA: Ratho
Is your child is aged between 8-14 years old and interested in learning to climb? Our NICAS Program (National Indoor Climbing Award Schemes) introduces kids to all the essential skills they need to stay safe and enjoy themselves climbing. Following the national development structure for climbing, this is the perfect first step into the scene and covers skills such as teamwork, listening and communication, alongside other practical climbing skills.
Running for 5 consecutive days during the holidays you can book your kids in below.
Adult Start Up Sessions
Our adult start up sessions introduce you to the skills needed to climb safely on our top rope walls and belaying. We also cover safe use of auto belays and bouldering. No previous experience is needed for this 2 hour course where we’ll show you the ropes. You can book your spot in our sessions below.
Climbing open until 10pm every Thursday
No booking required for Climb
Also there are no session times, meaning you can come when you want and stay as long as you want within our opening hours.If you are a member you can simply go straight to the arena and use your card/fob at the arena gates to get in.
If you are with a non-member, they will have to pay for their visit at reception in order to climb/boulder.
