The easiest way for kids to try climbing at alien one is taking part in our kids club sessions or having a go in a taster session.

We now offer training and assessment for NICAS

The National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme is a UK wide scheme designed 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. It is open to all candidates aged 7 and upwards.

See the NICAS site for more details.

For those kids doing level 3 check out this link "Grit Kids" by NICAS and Hotaches.
