Teen Indoor Rock Climbing at Edinburgh Ratho

On Saturday, Haemophilia Scotland hosted an indoor rock climbing event for teenagers affected by a bleeding disorder at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena in Ratho.

We met earlier to have some lunch and chat about our experiences of living with a bleeding disorder before our two friendly climbing instructors picked us up and took us into the climbing arena.

There, were learnt how to tie a knot on the safety rope, belay and climb. It didn’t take too long before everyone’s inner spiderman was unleashed!

The tallest wall is 30 metres high and requires 60 metres of rope. A massive well done to Finn and Gregor for being brave enough to climb to the top and to Kevin for having a good crack at it!

Following the rock climbing and full of adrenaline, the teens had a go at abseiling over the side of a five-storey internal balcony. They’re a fearless bunch!

Thank you to everyone who came along and made it a great day.
