Black Diamond don’t just design equipment. They don’t just sell it. They build it. For more than 50 years Black Diamond have been getting their hands dirty and their backs sore building the tools you need, from the old-school days of company founder Yvon Chouinard banging out pins on his backyard anvil to the new-school times of making award-winning carabiners in their cutting-edge hot forge. Black Diamond strive to build all of their gear using the latest in technologies and materials, and that unrelenting commitment has resulted in the most widely used, widely acclaimed line of skiing, climbing and mountain equipment in the world.
