Black Diamond Tribe Leaders

Supporting our community.

With the help of Black Diamond, we’ve supported a number of climbers throughout the year and selected them to be part of the Tribe Leader programme. The selected climbers received some sponsorship throughout the year to help with their climbing – from pads to apparel.

Last years Tribe Leaders were selected after and being recognised for a variety of reasons. The thing that ties them together is that they all act as enthusiastic ambassadors for our sport and represent a cross-section of our valued climbing community.

We work hard to ensure that our centres are inclusive and welcoming to all types of visitors and last years Tribe Leaders below exemplify this.
