National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme

At the Barn we provide a scheme called Nicas. It is a national proficiency scheme that develops and accredits the skills of indoor climbing. For any one aged 9 or up, the scheme is a great way to improve and monitor your climbing development. There are five different certificated levels which your instructor can guide you through. You also receive a log book where you record your progress and keep records of your achievements.

We run this scheme as part of our Kids' Club on Saturday and Sunday during our Barn Youth Climbing Club sessions. If you or your child are aged 7+ and are keen to get started, give us a call on 01822  870521 or come along at 11.30am for an hour and a half on a Saturday or Sunday morning.

The Barn Climbing Wall is a Primary Center for Nicas, which means we can assess all five levels and also give inductions to organizations wishing to become awarding centers. Please contact The Barn for more information. To find out more about the Nicas Scheme please follow the link below to the official Nicas website.
