Bouldering and roped climbing

We have two climbing rooms at the Pleasance: a roped facility (the Tower) and a bouldering room (the Rock).

Welcome to the University of Edinburgh climbing wall community! Here's a little guide to help you understand our climbing offering.

Our climbing facilities are available to University of Edinburgh staff, students and Sport & Exercise members. Members can also bring a guest.

Our climbing facilities are open seven days a week.

Bouldering is a bookable activity with sessions lasting 1 hour 30 minutes. There is no need to book for roped climbing

We run a variety of courses and workshops for beginners as well as more advanced climbers.

Our climbing facilities make an excellent venue for team building activities, fund-raising events, or group outings.
