We’ve been dedicated to supporting both “up and comers” as well as top end established climbers since the early 1990’s. Past Mountain Equipment alumni athletes include the likes of Saxon Johns, Lee and Ben Cossey, James Scarborough, Samantha Berry and Axel Triton. Being able to sponsor Andrew Lock through his entire journey in climbing all fourteen 8,000m mountains would also rate as one of our proudest moments. In more recent years we have been more focused on grass roots sponsorship with supporting youth that are showing potential. It has been great to have seen a number of kids come through the gym ranks and now be competing on the national and international stage. As well as the young guns, such as Jarred Jordon and Bryson Klein, we still keep supporting Andrew Lock with his current adventures as well as getting behind Chris Burke in seeing her dream come true of being the first Aussie female to climb all fourteen 8,000ers!
