I appreciated reading the letters and Ed Note on representing women in the climbing community in the May issue (No. 360). I have benefitted from the efforts the magazine has taken to highlight and empower women. I hope that this trend continues to include climbers from diverse backgrounds, including representation in terms of race, physical ability, sexual orientation, and nationality. I have been climbing for over 20 years, and it has been my pleasure to see how the gyms and crags have become more diverse. I have always found the climbing community to be incredibly supportive, affirming, and welcoming. I hope as a community we can continue to create spaces and opportunities that encourage diverse bodies, thinking, and backgrounds.
