We're psyched to announce our latest partnership with @FreerideWorldTour. We will be taking the lead with BD and PIEPS as the official supplier and snow safety partner. As lead sponsor, we will be hooking up top qualifying athletes and staff with co-branded airbags, beacons, shovels and probes and hosting snow safety workshops at select FWT events around the glove for the 2019, 2020 and 2021 seasons. @avalanchepieps @blackdiamond_snow #FWT19 #dropin #liveskirepeat


“This powerful nothingness—that at once empties and fills the mind—is why powder is so addictive,” writes BD Athlete @marykmcintyre. For Mary—a devoted powder hound—her “Never Never Land” is Japan.⠀ ⠀ Check out the beautiful film featuring Mary Mac ski the most incredible skiing she's ever experienced, link in profile.⠀ ⠀ #liveskirepeat⠀ Video: @eliel_hindert @blackdiamond_snow


See those yellow flags? Each one marks 50 meters/ 165 feet! This line is 888 meters/2,900 feet long. At the average walking speed of 5km/hr (3mph) on solid ground, it would take you 12 minutes to walk this far. It would take you 36 seconds driving in a car at freeway speeds. For BD Athlete @handsomerobinson, this walk took 40 minutes (that's a long time to stay focused) and is the longest highline walked in the USA. ⠀ Photo: @aidanwilliamsphoto

In a dark basement corner at our BD headquarters, there’s a small length of metal tube that hangs as tribute to one of climbing’s greats. Alex Lowe worked at BD for a spell and stories about him still linger in the building. They are told by the people who knew and worked with him, all of those stories speak to a character that was larger than life. A few months back, BD Athlete @alexhonnold was in town and paused to do a few reps on the pull up bar Lowe put up in 1991. Two legendary men named Alex separated by time. #tbt Photo: @wasatchandy

You know it’s hard when BD Athlete @Adam.Ondra says climbing Belly Full of Bad Berries (5.13b) was one of the biggest fights of his life. Ondra was able to send the infamous offwidth on his second go, but not without digging deep into his reserves and pushing past the heinous pump. Check out the full video capturing the epic battle, link in profile.⠀ ⠀ #liveclimbrepeat⠀ Video: Adam Ondra Productions⠀ @blackdiamond_climb


“I’m basically a total beginner. It’s like a different sport,” says BD Athlete @Adam.Ondra. ⠀ Ondra recently made his first pilgrimage to Indian Creek—the crack climbing capital of the world. In this video, Ondra racks up for the ultimate classic: Supercrack of the Desert (5.10). ⠀ ⠀ Watch the full video, link in profile. ⠀ ⠀ #liveclimbrepeat ⠀ Video: Adam Ondra Productions


BD Athlete @Adam.Ondra puts his gear to the ultimate test, whether he’s plugging Camalots on El Cap’s hardest free routes, or clipping LiveWire Quickdraws on the world’s hardest sport routes. Recently, on his way to the surrounding desert southwest, Ondra stopped by the BD headquarters in Salt Lake City. Here he got to see first-hand how the gear he trusts his life to is made. Lucky for Ondra, we had a new product hot off the press—the redesigned Camalot C4—and we were able to take him through the manufacturing process of these bad-boys before sending him off with a fresh set so he could test his mettle (and metal) down in Indian Creek. ⠀ ⠀ Watch the full video, link in profile. ⠀ ⠀ #liveclimbrepeat⠀ Video: Adam Ondra Productions
