The Newsroom is a large welcoming bouldering centre close to the centre of Glasgow. Bouldering is low-level climbing over mats. No ropes or harnesses are required and you don’t need to do a course to get started. The Newsroom is a great place for experienced climbers and complete newcomers, with walls of all angles. We have a kids specific climbing area, training walls, gym equipment and a stretching area. We also offer courses and personal coaching.
Our large cafe is open to anyone. We offer fresh, locally roasted coffee and delicious snacks. The climbing shop at The Newsroom has climbing clothes, shoes, equipment, guidebooks and knowledgeable staff who can help you with shoe fittings and specialist climbing advice.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME

LOG YOUR CLIMBS
TCA operates a free system for climbers to track climbs, log progress and (if inclined) compete on a monthly leaderboard via an app called Griptonite – find out more.
