We are just back from a weekend in Edinburgh where our son was competing in the national indoor climbing finals. The EICA Climbing Centre at Ratho just outside Edinburgh is an amazing venue which is built into a disused quarry. It has recently undergone a £6 million refurbishment and the attention to detail and quality of finish is very impressive. The dramatic architecture and sheer scale of the place made for a memorable day. There were 187 competitors representing all the regions of the UK, the competitive spirit and genuine camaraderie was inspiring. Well done Hamish!
