Overview

The award winning Glasgow Climbing Centre offers a unique rock climbing experience, for people looking for a new sport to enjoy, or for existing climbers just arrived in Glasgow. We make full use of the converted church we are in, with climbing routes stretching up into the original oak beamed ceiling. We offer Bouldering, Top/Bottom roped climbing and Lead climbing with route graded from beginner to elite. Our great eatery, The Balcony Cafe, offers something for climbers and non climbers alike, with alternate vistas of climbing and original stained glass windows. This year we are Hit Listed by The List, as one of the finest cafes in Glasgow.

I have been a member here for many years and it is a fantastic centre. Lots of variety of wall and bouldering. Staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. Even has a wee cafe if you come with non climbers, they can watch :)

My son choose the Climbing Centre for his 10th birthday party. All but two of the boys had limited experience of rock climbing however they had a great time. It was great value for money and I was impressed by the safety procedures in place....More

Great attraction for any climber or sports fanatic. Great views and a really cool cafe. I am an occasional climber but really love the vibe and atmosphere of the centre. Free WIFI, great food and friendly staff make this a top place.
