NICAS Level 1 - New Climber

An entry level course aimed at novices that establishes their ability to climb safely under supervision.

The syllabus is delivered in terms of 5 or 6 weeks.

The cost includes all equipment hire including harness and climbing shoes.

Please note a log book must be purchased when you start Level 1 which will last you through to Level 3 (£7.50 per log book).


  • How many terms will it take to pass?

Each student is different but generally older students (10+) tend to pass in one term and younger students often need to complete multiple terms.

  • Do I need to buy special equipment?

No, all climbing equipment is supplied. We do not recommend buying equipment until you have a good understanding of what you need which will be covered as you progress through the syllabus.

  • What happens if I miss a session?

Missed sessions are non refundable. All students will be assessed on the last week of each term and if they do not meet the required standard they will not pass. We follow a set syllabus so where students miss content instructors are unable to provide 1:1 tuition. However, content is repeated throughout the term
