What is happening

The BBC Adventure Show are looking to broadcast live from Edinburgh International Climbing Arena on Friday 19th July at 1900 through to 2100 for their new show. So for this we have created the 'ClimbScotland EICA Open'.

There will be pre-recorded filming happening during the day between 1500 and 1800 looking specifically at speed climbing and bouldering. During the televised show, there will be a leading climbing competition which we are looking for people to register for if they would like to take part.

We are keen to create a real buzz to the arena for this, so EICA are offer free access for those willing to be involved in the event. There will also be some bouldering challenges for people to have ago at too.
