  • The atmospheric climbing location. This is a superb place for learning and very kid friendly. The constant chilled beats in the background eases you in. Need to have completed a course to take in up to 2 non members to climb. Great variety of technically challenging walls. This is a busy place and rightly so. The staff are superb and offer help. There are changing rooms, toilets and a shower. There is a shop for your climbing needs. In the basement there is bouldering floor which is also challenging with good mats. The balcony cafe has a good mix to offer from toasties, sandwiches and salads. Usually soup as well as some curry. Vegan and veggies are covered. Staff friendly.
  • Great location. An old church transformed into a lovely climbing centre. Helpful staff with a great knowledge and good atmosphere. You need to be a member or signed in with a member to go in, a simple sign off on belaying and tieing the knots correctly. Check out the cafe as well for some great meals and snacks.
  • Great place, cool old church aesthetic. Good climbing walls and membership for a very reasonable price!
  • I'm a total beginner at climbing. Done an introduction course years ago and finally getting round to putting the knowledge to the test. Staff are friendly, and the climb routes are varied and regularly changed to keep things fresh. Im sure there's a route to challenge everyone. They even have a couple of the top feed lines so you could come without someone to belay for you and still get some climbing done. cool place.
  • Great staff and great prices for climbing. You need to be signed in with a member or take a climbing test to be allowed in, which is a good safety precaution in a place like this.

Where to stay in Glasgow

Glasgow's revitalized city center offers outstanding accommodations--along with some of the finest shopping outside London. Considered one of the finest Victorian cities in Britain, Glasgow is renowned for its centrally located hotels. Spacious rooms overlook the historical city center, and award-winning restaurants and trendy cafes occupy the lower levels. Farther away from the central areas, which are often noisy and crowded with tourists, is a world of small B&Bs and guesthouses. These considerably cheaper options offer quality lodging in quiet neighborhoods less frequented by weekend revelers and rowdy nightlife lovers.
