Clean, silent and human powered. We love climbing on rock. It’s a transformative experience that can help ground and reconnect you with yourself in the most wonderful ways. Approached humbly and with respect, it can show us the subtle functioning of concentration, effort and focus, providing a never-ending examination into the self. And of course rock climbing in East Lothian is fun, stimulating and a great way to learn core skills of the ultimate silent sport from our professional instructors.
Recent Climbing Trips
Just had an amazing morning out climbing with my friend at Ocean Vertical. I didn’t know you could do real rock climbing in East Lothian.
I don’t have much experience but I felt safe and the guys really knew what they were doing. I feel a lot more confident now and it was even sunny! We will be back!
Thanks for a fantastic day climbing in Northumberland the other week! Stevie B knows his stuff and definitely upped my climbing game.
Adrian shared a good number of stories about their experiences winter mountaineering in Scotland which I will 100% take them up on this year! Looking forward to climbing in East Lothian with you guys soon!
Lucky enough this year to go out with Ocean Vertical winter mountaineering in Glen Coe, paddle boarding in East Lothian and just recently rock climbing outdoors in Northumberland. Each experience has been an awesome day! Learning valuable skills like navigation in the winter to learning how to safely climb on rock from Stevie and Adrian who are both great at what they do. Loads of experience and knowledge in the outdoors. Looking forward to hopefully more adventure in Scotland soon.
