*The Roped Skills course is an adult course. We would recommend U18s join our regular NICAS courses instead to develop their skills over time. After an adult course, an adult must decide whether they are competent enough to register for unsupervised climbing — whereas an U18 must be passed as competent by an instructor and is likely to need additional sessions after the Roped Skills course before an instructor will sign them off as proficient climbers.
