Alien One is a dedicated rock climbing facility in Edinburgh with a variety of climbing walls which have been integrated into an old former church.

The walls here range from easy slab to overhanging roof and provide opportunities for top-roping, leading and bouldering. There are 40 top-roping lines and for more experience climbers there are 12 overhanging lead lines. The bouldering wall is 4.8 meters high at its highest point and varies from vertical to 45 degrees overhanging.

Drinks and snacks can be purchased from reception where there is also a shop from which climbing equipment can be purchased. There are changing rooms available and some equipment that can be hired from the centre but this does not include lead ropes.

More bouldering is available at their sister site Alien Two.
