  • An illustrated guide for young climbing wall climbers produced in conjunction with NICAS (the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme). A beautiful little hardback book with lots of delightful illustrations by Sophie Mitchell. The book covers all the skills required for NICAS stages 1, 2 and some of 3 and is fully endorsed by NICAS.
    “The NICAS trustees are delighted to recommend this book with its innovative approach to introducing the basic skills of climbing. Sophie’s wonderful artwork will have special appeal to young readers and will help them develop a thorough grounding in these fundamentals. The knowledge, technical skills and attitude required to become a safe climber are clearly described whilst still conveying the fun and excitement of this challenging sport. Climbing develops fitness, movement skills, teamwork, and determination and this lively book is sure to enthuse many budding young climbers on their way.” - Guy Jarvis, Chairman of NICAS.
    The book has lots of little features like the fold out cover with a try-at-home section of cord and cut out harness loops to practice your knot on. It also has a flick-book movie in the bottom corner showing the correct belay technique. All these features make it an appealing product for children just starting out to climb. By using the book they can develop good and safe technique, whilst enjoying and getting enthused about their climbing.
    A good book for anyone under 12 who is starting to climb.
