The National Indoor Climbing Awards Scheme (NICAS) is a UK-wide scheme and is a great starting point for young climbers wishing to take up mountaineering and climbing.
Before joining a NICAS course all climbers will need to complete a NICAS taster session. Book your NICAS taster session over the Christmas Holidays to start in January 2023.
The new NICAS term starts in January.
We will be running more weekly sessions on the following days:
Saturday 12-2pm(Level 3)
Saturday 2-4pm (Level 4)
Saturday 4-6pm(Level 1 and 2)
In order to join the NICAS courses your child must first attend a NICAS Taster Session.
We are running these over the Christmas holidays on the dates below. All of the sessions run from 10-11:30am and cost £15. Minimum age is 8 years.

Elliot has started climbing sessions with Sarah, at Summit Up, which has been fantastic! Climbing has such a positive impact on him. It is so good for his physical fitness and each time he climbs, we see him really having to work hard and use his problem-solving skills. Most important of all, he clearly really enjoys it!
I needed a sport that gave me the sense of adventure I was missing in my life....If I had an addiction, it would be climbing. I just can’t imagine living without it.
For anyone thinking of starting climbing, Tim's advice is simple, "It's less about your arms than you think. If you can climb a flight of stairs, then you are able to climb a rock climb."
