Black Diamond is one of the oldest climbing companies in existence today. The company’s history dates back to the late 1950s, when Yvon Chouinard, who went on to found Patagonia later on, began hand-forging pitons and selling them from the trunk of his car in Yosemite Valley. The pitons were selling so well that Chouinard was climbing less and less, and soon the company Chouinard Equipment was born. As Yvon wasn’t successful in making the company profitable and he was concentrating more on Patagonia he sold Chouinard Equipment to a group of former employees, and so Black Diamond Equipment was born. Today Black Diamond continues to be leading the world of climbing equipment innovation, and also produces world-class skis, poles, avalanche airbags and since 2015 also apparel. Based in Utah, United States, the company HQ is located close to the Wasatch Mountains, an ideal test ground for the various products Black Diamond designs and manufacturers nowadays.
A product Black Diamond is renowned for are their Camalot cams. A Camalot, or Cam which is short for camming device, is a spring-loaded camming devices which you place in a crack in the rock and then clip the rope into a carabiner, so that it can catch you if you fall. The Black Diamond Camalots were a small revolution when they came out, as they made placements much faster and easier, and especially ”cleaner”, then traditional pitons or nuts & hexes. ”Cleaner” means in this case that you don’t need to drill or hit something into the rock. Black Diamond has nowadays different ranges of Cams, and the Camalot C4 is the original range which has been updated several times.

Two innovations from Black Diamond are the Jetforce Avalanche Airbag and the AvaLung system. The AvaLung System which allows avalanche victims to hold out longer with the available air. Fresh air is filtered out of the snow using the AvaLung system and exhaled CO2 is diverted away from the body via a second valve. The Jetforce Avalanche Airbag on the other hand is one of the most advanced Avalanche Airbags on the market, which deploys rapidly and can contract again after a set amount of time, creating a larger space around a person who got buried by an avalanche.
