What began with a backyard anvil and a hammer has grown into a global company with offices on two continents. Not a company just for rock climbers, but one that stands for the spirit of the sports we live, their values and goals, past, present and future. Since 1957, BD's innovative gear designs have set the standards in numerous areas. This is partly the result of dedication, desire and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people. Black Diamond employees are the greatest dreamers about what could be, and the harshest of critics about what exists and because of this – the creation of Black Diamond is a process which will never end.

Then, on the 20th round, you pull the lever and it comes up LOSER..."
