A Climber's Paradise

EICA: Ratho has amazing climbing facilities, but it’s not just for climbers. Who’d have thought you could do so much with a disused quarry?

Bouldering Room

Angled training and bouldering boards for climbers of all abilities from simple V0 routes for beginners to technically challenging V15 routes for experts. If you prefer the space and drama of the climbing arena, tackle the three bouldering rocks, surrounded by crash pads with routes from V0 to V12. 


Cafe Refresh is open to all and offers enticing views overlooking the incredible arena. Choose from a huge range of healthy options and delicious sweet treats or grab and go. We also have a Cafe Refresh adjacent to Scrambles soft play on Level 1.

Climbing Arena

Tower Wall runs the length of the arena, a top roping wall up to 28m and grades from 2 to 7b+. The Main Wall at 25m and grades from 3+ to 8b will satisfy anyone’s appetite for overhangs. The steep, daunting Competition Walls are a challenge for the World Youth Championships and British Championship Finals.

Conference & Events

We offer a unique and inspiring conference and events venue with capacity for up to 1,800 delegates in the main climbing arena and a selection of rooms and suites offering quality meeting space for groups of various sizes.

Fitness Studio

Our spacious studio hosts an extensive range of classes such as high-energy workouts, conditioning, yoga, zumba and a choice of several RPM classes per week. Many of our regulars join in a class while a family member is climbing or bouldering.


Exercise in our modern gym with a panoramic view out across the old quarry. We have 70 stations, with top of the range cardio and strength equipment so you can work all the muscles you’re likely to need on the climbing wall, and develop your strength and stamina.
