Climbing Walls

Indoor climbing was recorded as the fastest growth sport in a Mintel Survey a few years ago and more and more people are trying climbing indoors. For some it is a much more enjoyable way to keep fit than other indoor activities such as the gym, for others it becomes a passion. Some rarely venture out of the climbing wall.

  • You and Indoor Climbing gives you advice about what to expect at a wall: registration and rules for use of the wall, equipment required, styles of climbing wall and climbing disciplines, accepted behaviour and being self-reliant, technical skills needed, access arrangements etc
  • The Climbing Wall Directory is a database of all the walls in Scotland detailing their facilities and availability
  • The Scottish Climbing Walls Network is a Partnership group of the main active walls and the MCofS. More detail of the facilities on offer by these walls is available here
  • Scottish Climbing Wall News lists some of the events and activities on offer
  • Climbing Walls and the MCofS is primarily for wall owners / manager and offers information about the role of the MCofS in: policy and development strategy, good practice, available walls safety information, MCofS support and the Association of British Climbing Walls (ABC)
