Black Diamond share the same experiences that you do on rock, ice and snow. These experiences push them to make the best gear possible for their worldwide family of climbers and skiers.
Since 1957, BD's innovative gear designs have set the standard in numerous areas. This is partly the result of dedication, desire and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people - climbers and skiers themselves.
With a massive 60m circular range, mark and scan function for multiple burials, and an auto antenna switch that automatically adjusts to send the best signal, the Black Diamond Guide BT beacon is the industry-standard, professional-grade avalanche beacon with Bluetooth capabilities.
With its revolutionary, patent-pending design made possible by our in-house hot forge, the Black Diamond GridLock Screwgate eliminates the dangers of cross loading. Designed specifically for belaying, the intuitive, easy-to-use GridLock isolates the belay loop behind its uniquely shaped gate, thereby keeping the carabiner in its proper orientation.
BD's most versatile belay/rappel device, the Black Diamond ATC-Guide is now even lighter thanks to windows machined through the body. They also enlarged the auto-block release hole to accept a small carabiner.
