NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme) Courses

Junior NICAS courses are aimed at young climbers aged 7-17 who have a passion for climbing and want more of a structured challenge. Working through the levels, climbers will learn everything about climbing; from simply tying-in, to lead climbing and participating in their first climbing competition. At Surrey Summit we offer all levels 1-5, and climbers can track their progress in their personal log book. Junior NICAS courses are booked termly and mirror Surrey school terms.
