Climbing Gym
“Climbing wall constructed in a vaulted church building, this is a cool activity if you are looking for something outside of the typical tourist sights. You can purchase a day entry pass. Hire equipment is also available. There are two venues, 'alien 1' is primarily for roped climbing both top-roping and leading; 'alien 2' is a dedicated bouldering centre nearby where the climbing is done over soft, 'crash' matting. Alien 2 is located at 37 W Bowling Green St, EH6 5NX.”
