Black Diamond trace their roots back 55 years, when their founders sought to fill a need for gear that could stand up to the rigours of vertical life and improve the speed and efficiency of ascending new routes. That steadfast commitment to building clean, functional equipment still defines the Black Diamond identity. BD use, design, engineer and build their gear in a constant evolutionary cycle of solutions, refinements and explorations into what’s possible. If you have ever placed a cam, clipped a draw or dropped into a couloir, you know Black Diamond and they know you. The clothing range is intuitively designed, rigorously engineered and beautifully built to inspire trust in situations of tremendous consequence encountered in the vertical realm.
