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.
