no the holes of the wire are bout a half a centimeter each but they will be a solid structure in the middle with no holes.

Yes, they can. Scorpions are quite edept at using their palps and tails to climb. A scorpion can climb *any* surface that is porus or is otherwise not completly smooth. They will "stand" on the length of their tails to give themselves as much reach as possible then use their palps (claws) to grab on to *any* surface they can and pull themselves up and around things.
Might I ask why you are using a divider for imps?
