I need pointers to how people make their case stand out.
-Community /Volunteer work ?
-Does active participation in sports matter ?
- I climb as a hobby - does that make a difference
- Do people have examples which they quoted on their examples
of demonstrated leadership.
Specifics make you stand out. So yes your climbing is distinctive, and if you organize climbing outings for novices, you could be demonstrating leadership. Then the question becomes how many people, where, when, what were the challenges you overcame, etc. Are you getting the idea?
Here are some other sources on distinguishing yourself:
