Alien Rock 2's in a back street down the bottom end of Leith Walk?
Was there once a looong time ago.



That's the one. Amazingly the guy asked me if I was registered with them and when I said yes but a very long time ago he entered my name into the system and it turns out I was originally registered in 1996 a couple of months after they opened!!!

Would that have been the old church down at Granton (Alien Rock 1)?

Malcolm, Ruben and their partner (can't remember his name :oops: ) started to build the wall in the church not long before the guys I knew started on Hadrian's Wall. Since I was in the same climbing club as Malcolm and 2 of the Hadrian's guys I nearly got involved with helping build Alien but did end up at Hadrian's building it and doing the maintenance once it was up and running. Didnae last very long though. :roll:

Newhaven. Near Granton but confusing the two can be seen as fighting talk to auld Bowtows (Newhaveners)
