The National Indoor Climbing Awards Scheme (NICAS) is a national indoor climbing award scheme that focuses on proficiency and development of climbing skills and ability. The NICAS clubs require registration with the NICAS scheme for the relevant levels before attendance (available at reception). As these are a developmental club they operate on a block booking basis typically for 4 weeks. Don’t worry; if you miss the chance to book on a NICAS block there are Drop in Clubs operating along side them with the only difference that there will not be a formulated week on week development; instead the ‘Drop in’ Clubs cater for those climbers that may not be able to attend week on week.
Drop In £14.00 per session.
Block of 4 sessions £52.00.

You can also purchase a log book, allowing you to record your progress and will let the instructors know how far you are through each level.

Block of 4 sessions £52.00.

If you are aged between 14 and 17 with previous climbing experience then the Leading club will provide you with that next step in developing your climbing. Participants should have either completed levels 1 to 3 of NICAS or have substantial climbing experience confidently climbing grade 5+ or above indoors (please ask one of our climbing instructors for guidance). This club operates as one entity for both NICAS and non NICAS participants and therefore allows drop in entry. Since Lead climbing and Lead belaying are inherently more dangerous than bottom rope climbing (what all our other clubs offer); Parents/guardians should make themselves familiar with these risks as they will be required to give consent for such activities before the junior can participate. Those aged 16 or over do not require parental consent but must still provide consent. All information on risks and consent forms are available from Transition Extreme.
