Who are Tenaya? - Now Available in the UK

Tenaya Logo, 18 kb
Tenaya® is a Spanish company dedicated to producing mountain and climbing shoes, as well as other outdoor equipment. It is based in southeast Spain, in one of the regions with the longest tradition in shoe making. 

Tenaya® was founded in 1997 by José Luis García Gallego, together with a family of entrepreneurs. José Luis belongs to a family where all four brothers are climbers, and had his first experience of climbing at the early age of eight. At twelve he did a first ascent of a new route, and at only seventeen he started establishing new routes on the most important walls in Spain, such as Naranjo de Bulnes. His passion for big wall climbing has taken him all over the world, performing new ascents in famous places such as Fitz Roy and El Capitan, where he has an impressive record of first ascents.

Since the early days, climbers such as Ron Kauk, Josune Bereziartu, the Pou brothers and Ramon Julián have played an active role in shoe development.
