Youth

At Mountain Extreme we believe everyone is born with a natural climbing ability. Some of our best climbers are under 18.

The minimum age to climb at Mountain Extreme is 4 years old.

Adventurous young climbers will find tons of exciting challenges!

Kids will learn climbing techniques and rope skills, including learning to tie the knots and to belay, while engaging their creative problem solving skills to scale the walls.

Climbing and collaborative games also emphasize teamwork, leadership skills, and goal setting in a dynamically fun and supportive environment.

NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme)

As the only NICAS Awarding Center outside of Europe we are committed to bringing UK standards and excellence in climbing coaching.

What is NICAS?

By joining NICAS, Mountain Extreme commits to deliver quality coaching by UK certified instructors.

Our coaches have at a minimum a Rock Climbing Instructor or Climbing Wall Instructor Award.

Senior coaches also have specific Coaching qualifications like Foundation Coach.

This means they have been assessed by a UK Mountain Training certified assessor and know what to coach, how to coach and do it safely.

They all hold a current First Aid certificate and take yearly refreshers.

All our coaches are also required to attend a Safeguarding and Protecting Children in Sport module.

We pride ourselves in our extensive Child Protection policy and have a zero tolerance for bullying in the groups we teach.

All our coaches are covered by our Third Party liability insurance and under our company visa.

Don’t settle for less in a climbing coach, your safety is at stake.

We provide expert training for students to meet the GCSE standard, whether you follow EDEXCEL, AQA or OCR.

From course plans, to risk assessments and current insurance certificates we help your P.E team to assess and train GCSE students to reach full marks.

In order to keep costs down for students, we provide all the required equipment, from climbing shoes to ropes.

Parents

For children under 7 years old, parents need to be present at all times when their children are climbing.

Children older than 7 do not require the parents presence at all time.

All Parents of minors (under 21 years old) must sign a waiver allowing their child to climb.
