Tierra has over 30 years' experience creating high-end, functional clothing for climbers. It has built a firm following in Scandinavia thanks to its intuitive, solid designs with a fantastic fit that offer exceptional attention to detail, which it couples with great quality fabrics. Tierra's streamlined range is amazingly built for purpose, constructed for ultimate performance, and benefits from an excellent, glove-like fit.
