About The Edinburgh site   

The Climbing Hangar is heading to Scotland to launch our 9th site! TCH Edinburgh, will be an all-new, purpose-built bouldering centre. With heart-pounding climbs at every grade including our popular "World Cup" circuit, we offer indoor climbing for everybody. It doesn't matter who you are, or how hard you climb, you'll get the same warm welcome at The Hangar… not to mention locally sourced coffee and homemade sourdough pizzas.   

In addition to an excellent café with loads of seating, the venue also boasts a remote working space, and a dedicated gym/ fitness area for training off the wall.   

While we believe indoor climbing is as much about "play" as it is about "progress", we'll have plenty of toys here for hardcore climbers, including Campus boards; Hangboards; a 50° Kilter Board; and a 40° wooden Beastmaker board. There really is something for everyone.
