NICAS level 4 & Leading Club
Course duration: 1.5 hours
Course times: Fridays 17:30 to 19:00
If you are aged between 14 and 17 with previous climbing experience then the Leading club will provide you with that next step in developing your climbing. Participants should have either completed levels 1 to 3 of NICAS or have substantial climbing experience confidently climbing grade 5+ or above indoors (please ask one of our climbing instructors for guidance). This club operates as one entity for both NICAS and non NICAS participants and therfore allows drop in entry.
Since Lead climbing and Lead belaying are inherantly mroe dangerous than bottom rope climbing (what all our other clubs offer); Parents/guradians should make themselves familiar with these risks as they will be required to give consent for such activities before the junior can participate. Those aged 16 or over do not require parental consent but must still provide consent. All information on risks and consent forms are available from Transition Extreme.
