THE NATIONAL INDOOR CLIMBING AWARD SCHEME
WHAT IS NICAS?
The National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme is a UK scheme designed to promote climbing development and accredit individual achievement on indoor climbing walls. It's a great starting point for young climbers wishing to take up climbing, from novice to experienced, starting from age 7.
This is a set of different qualifications that give students the skills and experience to climb safely and a structure in which to progress to more challenging routes and improved performance.
Mountain Extreme s the only climbing centre in the Middle East that is authorised to award NICAS levels 1 to 3.
Level 1 – Foundation Climber
Level 2 – Top Rope Climber
Level 3 – Technical Climber
The scheme is run by the ABC Training Trust a registered charity and recognised by the British Mountaineering Council, the Mountaineering Council of Scotland and the Mountaineering Council of Ireland.
