NICAS National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme


The National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) was created 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. The schemes are open to all candidates aged 7 and upwards.

Being an indoor and outdoor climbing venue, NICAS is provided at Delaware Centre in East Cornwall, up to Level Two (Level Three in 2017). Our experienced instructors have been delivering this award for several years and some of our students have gone on to complete the awards highest level.

If you are interested in getting your students or even yourself started along the NICAS qualification pathway, then contact us at the Delaware Centre (01822 833885) to find out the best way to get your students individually qualified. We can either provide you a regular set of days over a six-week period, or we can build it in to your residential programme for a small additional fee to cover the cost of logbook and certificates.
