The ultimate day out in the Scottish Highlands at the UK's premier adventure centre... indoor ice + rock climbing. winter + summer outdoor hillwalking, mountaineering + climbing. tree top adventure course with tower, abseiling, giant swing + drop zone. shop. restaurant. bar/bistro. children's play areas. equipment + bike hire... Over 600m² of state-of-the-art climbing walls will make up the dry climbing compliment of the Ice Factor's adventure experiences. In the main arena all walls are 15m high and all are equipped for both lead climbing and top roping. Grades are mainly in the mid and upper range. The ice wall is a jaw dropping facility which simply has no rival in the world. It is more than 5 times bigger than any other indoor ice wall. The wall contains nearly 500 tonnes of snow, which has been packed, and maintained, by hand to create a variety of routes from easy angled snow slope through to monster overhangs. The ice wall offers nearly 1400m2 of varying ice climbing routes to a height of 15m, all designed to emulate the type of problems mountaineers may encounter on an outdoor route.
