“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, NICAS Chair
“The MCofS supports the NICAS scheme as an excellent way to engage young children going to climbing walls, to learn the basics of safe climbing and to keep them motivated through their early years discovering our unique sport. A picture is worth a thousand words, but only if it is relevant, and despite there being many instructional handbooks available, this is the first book designed to appeal to children with its clear and often funny cartoon depictions of the best way to learn vital skills. It is a perfect resource for parents, climbing coaches and children themselves to help them through their NICAS achievement.”
Kevin Howett, MCofS Development Officer
