Notes
The UK (and world's?) largest climbing wall. Set in a covered quarry, the walls are current state of the art, with five monster surfaces(up to 28 metres high) supplemented by freestanding boulders and a bouldering hall. Route setting is excellent.

Two huge new walls were added in 2009 to make this already large centre absolutely massive.

Can be very cold in winter. Roof is currently being repaired.

Visited Ratho yesterday, good wall, like the lack of colour on the walls, the off white works well. The space and openess was a real change for me, I liked. The wall needs some TLC tho, I am aware of the well documented problems the wall has had, but all is needed is a keen climber/s to go about the wall and tidy, take some care etc. Ive not been to that many walls, but at Ratho the bolts are 1m apart mostly, bit excessive I would say, some even get in the way of the holds, one obstructed a sloper and potentially could have cut someone lunging for the hold etc Overall a very good wall, so much potential but sadly not getting the TLC it requires.
