Company Description

Black Diamond Equipment develops, manufactures and distributes a broad range of highly innovative, market leading hardgoods and apparel products for climbing, mountaineering, hiking, and skiing. The roots of the company go back to 1957, when 18-year-old Yvon Chouinard bought a hammer and anvil and started pounding out hand-forged rock climbing pitons. Over the next several decades, those first chromoly pitons--followed by a steady stream of other radical, game changing products--forever altered the sport of climbing. In 1989, the employees, friends and customers of Chouinard Equipment, led by Peter Metcalf, bought the company's assets and formed Black Diamond Equipment, Ltd.
