The National Indoor Climbing Award Schemes (NICAS and NIBAS) are administered by the ABCTT, the ABC Training Trust. They are UK-wide schemes designed to promote climbing development and accredit individual achievement on artificial climbing structures. They 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 and can be used individually or as part of a formal structure such as GCSE, Duke of Edinburgh or the Curriculum For Excellence. (more…)
