- Training Facilities
The Newsroom is a large welcoming bouldering centre close to the centre of Glasgow. Bouldering is low-level climbing over mats – it’s the easiest way to try climbing. The Newsroom has a kids specific climbing area, endurance circuits, gym equipment and a stretching area. We offer courses and personal coaching for both adults and youth.
Our cafe is open to anyone with fresh, locally roasted coffee and delicious snacks and beer. The climbing shop at The Newsroom has one of Scotland’s largest selection of climbing shoes, clothes, kit, guidebooks and helpful staff who can help you with shoe fittings and specialist climbing advice. Visit our Access page to find out more about parking, step-free access and other accessible facilities.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME
Come and try bouldering
You don’t have to book or complete a course to go bouldering, just turn up. You can hire shoes at each centre. Save time by completing a form online (which includes a safety video) in advance. Over 16s can boulder unsupervised. Under 16s must be supervised by a registered adult. Each adult can supervise up to 2 others per visit.
