Delaney Carpenter

 

 

 

Delaney has been involved in the climbing scene since 2009 and more actively in the larger climbing organisations since 2012. Due to her passion for the sport and environment, as well as her love of sharing the spirit of the sport with everyone, Delaney’s climbing path has led her to open up her own climbing club with partner, Ricky Traviss.  After spending two and a half years coaching exclusively for Western Cape Climbing and following the structural requirements of the South African National Climbing Federation as well as the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee, opening up their own climbing club seemed the obvious best next step.
