Black Diamond is all about climbing and skiing. They share the same experiences that you do on rock, ice and snow and these experiences push Black Diamond to make the best gear possible for their worldwide family of climbers and skiers.
What began with a backyard anvil and a hammer has now grown into a global company with offices on three continents. Black Diamond is a company that's not just for rock climbers and skiers, but one that stands for the spirit of the sports they live, their values and goals, past, present and future. Since 1957, Black Diamond's innovative gear designs have set the standard in numerous areas. This is partly the result of dedication, desire and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people. It's also a product of the fact that each of them are climbers and skiers themselves.
They are a company of users. It's who they are. They are the greatest dreamers about what could be, and the harshest of critics about what exists. Because of this, the creation of Black Diamond is a process that will never end. The company today is more committed than ever, thanks to the many people in the U.S. and at Black Diamond Europe whose limitless energy and hands-on involvement have created a promising future for all climbers and skiers worldwide.
