National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme

The National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme (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.

Every week thousands of people climb indoors and outdoors on purpose built artificial climbing walls. For many the climbing wall is their first introduction to the absorbing world of climbing. The Association of British Climbing Walls (ABC) is concerned that high standards should be encouraged early on in a participant’s climbing career so that both safety and enjoyment can be maximised to the full.

The National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme will provide the structure and motivation for new climbers to develop their skills in order that they may gain the most out of their climbing as well as having their achievements recognised.

Newcastle Climbing Centre is a Primary centre for NICAS, for more information and bookings please contact reception
