National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme lessons are held at various Edinburgh venues. Lessons provide an excellent platform from which to learn to climb.
Candidates are given a record booklet in which their instructor will sign off particular elements as they are completed.
Level 1 of the award is Foundation Climber an entry level aimed at novices that recognises their ability to climb safely under supervision.
Level 2 is Top Rope Climber, aimed at promoting good practice in climbing and bouldering unsupervised on an artificial wall.
Throughout levels 1 and 2 there is a strong emphasis on safety and etiquette as well as climbing and belaying.
NICAS is a UK wide scheme designed to promote climbing development and accredit individual achievement on artificial climbing structures. It can be used as a starting point for people wishing to take up climbing and mountaineering. It is open to all candidates aged 7 and upwards. Further Information click here.
