Climbing club - Geckos

Climbing clubs at Boulders. The 'Geckos' climbing club is for young, experienced climbers who have completed NICAS level 3 and are ready to take a step into the world of advanced techniques and lead climbing!

When a child joins the Geckos climbing club, they will already have their NICAS level 3, having graduated from our Spider Monkeys climbing club and will be ready to start NICAS levels 4 and 5. As well as completing the next two levels, there are also the Boulders kids award badges to work towards and training classes.

Over the duration of half an academic term the child will follow a structured syllabus and be taught skills to make them a safer, more competent and help them progress in their climbing career. The Boulders Geckos syllabus uses the NICAS levels as a guide for course content, achieving the next NICAS level is only part of becoming a climber!

If a child is struggling to complete the club's activities, then catch up sessions may be joined at additional cost at the end of the course. Alternatively, our holiday activities are a great way to cram a lot of learning into a short space of time.

Children that show an aptitude for the competitive side of the sport may be invited to attend the climbing academy selection trials
