Climb Scotland have worked closely with Lothian Disability Sport to establish the first Scottish Paraclimbing Club across the country, providing opportunities for individuals with a disability or additional support needs to become involved and progress in the sport.
The club is being developed to create a paraclimbing community based out of Edinburgh International Climbing Arena (EICA) and will meet on a Thursday evening from 7pm – 9pm. The club will work very closely with a network of volunteers who will be present to support and provide assistance where needed.
How Do I Get Involved?
Come & Try Paraclimbing – there will be a ‘Come and Try’ session option on the same evening as the club meets. This session will be open to people new to the sport and will provide assistance from qualified staff as well as specialist equipment.
‘Come and Try Paraclimbing’, places are subject to availability, please call the following number: 0131 333 6305 or email: email@example.com to book your place.
Competent Climbers – If you are a competent climber interested in the club or are a competent climber who is supporting a paraclimber then you are more than welcome to come along to our club night and sign either yourself and/or a climber you are supporting in too.
The club aims to provide a safe, inclusive and friendly climbing environment for its members. In order for this to happen we require parents, guardians and/or carers to be present and encourage involvement in activity. Training is available for those with no previous climbing experience and there is no requirement for you to climb if you don’t want to.
If you are interested in joining, then please get in touch with us firstname.lastname@example.org.
