Back into the swing of things

January Update: Please be aware of and respect the travel restrictions in your local authority area.

From Saturday the 26th December 2020, all of mainland Scotland is within tier 4 restrictions. This means that most indoor climbing walls are closed until February 1st, at the earliest.

This is a mixed picture, as each of the walls across Scotland has had to assess its own individual circumstance, the ABC guidelines and their ability to reopen. We ask that climbers are mindful of this and respect the challenging circumstances walls have, and continue to face.

To make this easier, we have created the following table to show what walls are currently open and links to their customer info, booking and/or capacity tracking systems.

Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them
