If you don't have the time to head north to the craggy outcrops of the Highlands but fancy a bit of urban rock climbing instead, Alien Rock is the place to check out. With various difficulties of ascent and descent, and 150 routes to choose from, you'll be sure to find a section to fit your needs and aspirations. Be warned, it is not that easy first time round - new faces need to prove their abilities before they're allowed to tackle the big wall. There is an excellent beginner's course and kids' courses are also available. Essential pieces of kit are for hire and discount and membership options are up for grabs.
Hi I recently went to alien rock
I would reccommend it, particularly the response time of their staff. I fell off the wall and it only took 45 minutes for them to get an ambulance... not bad given the state of the NHS!
It beats the hell out of Hadrian's Wall in falkirk, who took 1hr 30mins to summons a charriot of the medical variety.
Alien Rocks has great comfy stetchers, and if your lucky enough to be in real pain, they will even make you a cup of tea.
Top service aliens. Brilliant day out, just make sure you remember to renew your danger sports insurance before you go. Fun and games!
