Want to try climbing outside…. On real rock!?!

Our trips give you the chance to try outdoor climbing on a safe and fun club trip. From total beginners to the mega strong our session have something for everyone.

Try real rock climbing, learn new skills, meet new friends and have an awesome climbing trip.


Want some coaching to become the next top climber?

We run fortnightly indoor coaching evenings at the Glasgow Climbing Centre. Our sessions are drop in sessions open to any member of the club.

Our young coaches will work with you over the evening giving you helpful tips and advice on how to climb better and safer.


Weekend Trips

We run weekend trips to different venues over the year. These trips will be fun outdoor climbing weekends open to all our members.

One of biggest trips is the Big Torridon Trip. This weekend trip to the boulders in Torridon is open to young club members from every club in Scotland. Its a huge weekend of fun, climbing, camping and chaos.

“It was very exciting and one of the best weekends I’ve ever had”


Want to become a coach?

Every year the Glasgow Gorillas run Fundamentals of Climbing courses for our older members (14>). This is the first step on the pathway to being a professional climbing coach.

We will also give you the chance to practice the skills you learn, volunteering as a youth coach during our coaching evenings.
