Evon Schinard was active in Big Wall around the world in the 1960s. He produced and sold climbing gears, including piton and other climbing with their own hands, gaining support from the climbers. Hexentric was released in 1971. We have led the tide of clean climbing that does not leave piton as much as possible on the rock.
Black Diamond took over the Scherns Diquipment, which was founded by his climber in 1989. The purpose is to faithfully inherit Schinard's policy of making reliable tools and always develop the highest quality hard gear.
The company's name was a combination of Black of Black Miss (Blacksmith), a symbol of climbing hardware, and diamonds, a symbol mark of Schider Dequipment.
Currently, not only climbing gears, but also various activities in nature, such as backcountry skies and trekking, have developed high -quality and highly trusted gears that can be used hard. The user has a worldwide spread such as Asia and Europe.
