About Black Diamond
This brand's origins date back to 1957; American climber Yvon Chouinard founded the business as he was hand-forging pitons and selling them out of his car boot around Yosemite Valley. Fast forward to December 1, 1989: Black Diamond was founded by a group of former Chouinard's employees and has been making a name for itself since amongst climbers, skiiers and mountaineers.
