NIBAS (National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme) will provide structured development with specific goals, recognising achievement with certificates to work towards. The instructors have been specifically inducted to deliver this scheme.


Previously, they ran a Bouldering and Progression Club for both Junior and Youth age groups. They will be supplementing this by bringing in another more advanced class for both Junior and Youth.


Following some feedback from parents on the weekend and the success of the weekday Youth session, they will also be bringing in a weekday Junior Advanced Club for the younger kids from January. This will be at 6pm on Wednesdays.
