What began with a backyard anvil and a hammer has now grown into a global company with offices on three continents. Since 1957, Black Diamond's innovative gear designs have set the standard in numerous areas. 

Black Diamond has become a globally recognized voice for conservation and preservation ethics, particularly in Utah, where Black Diamond's global headquarters sit at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains. Black Diamond and Waste Management recycled an estimated 25 tons of Black Diamond's waste—approximately 60% of the organization's total solid waste stream. This included approximately 138 tons of cardboard, 43 tons of metals, 28 tons of paper, 26 tons of plastics and 1,776 lbs of computer waste. This recycling effort amounted to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of approximately 510 tons CO2—roughly equivalent to not driving 720,000 miles each year.

    How to pick the right climbing shoe for you

    Sizing Climbing Shoes

    I'm sure you've heard your climbing friend tell you to size way down and cram your foot into something 2 sizes too small and that if it really hurts, it's the right size. While there is a time and a place for aggressive sizing, if you're new to the sport, comfort should still be a priority.

    However, climbing shoes do have a unique fit and there is a break in period as well. Starting out, you should probably begin a half size down from your street shoe size. Also, all brands fit differently. If you can, come in for a fitting. If not, give us a call and we'll help you figure out the right pair just for you. Remember, happy feet will let you spend more time on the wall.
