Black Diamond is having an end-of-season equipment sale to help you save money and send your next route.
This week, you can get up to 25% off all kinds of rock climbing gear, ice climbing gear, ropes, shoes, lighting, and more. Below, we’ve highlighted some of the best deals, but be sure to check out the entire sale as well.
Trail Trekking Poles: $75 (25% Off)
The trail trekking pole is versatile for any terrain in all four seasons. Black Diamond updated the fusion strap to help provide better handling, more comfort, and added security. While durable, these poles are also pretty sleek, weighing in under 1.5 pounds.
Vector Helmet: $68 (20% Off)
According to the brand, the Vector Helmet combines lightweight protection, excellent ventilation, and “barely there” comfort, which makes it suitable for long routes where every ounce counts. We also love this helmet’s adjustment straps and fit.
Liquid Black Gold Chalk: $15 (25% Off)
Black Gold liquid chalk is an alternative to regular chalk. According to the brand, it absorbs twice the moisture and, once dry, leaves a grippy layer of chalk so you don’t have to reapply as often. Plus, it contains 70% ethanol, which can help kill germs and viruses.
Creek 35 Pack: $142 (25% Off)
Burly, water-resistant materials make the Creek 35 pack a popular option with climbers. It’s one of our editor’s go-to crag packs. In our tests, it was easy to carry, held a lot of gear, and all the pockets and zippers kept us organized.
Solution Harness: $60-80 (20% Off)
This lightweight harness aims to provide comfort by evenly distributing your weight when hanging as well as reducing pressure on sensitive areas while still maximizing freedom of movement.
Camalot C4: $58-112 (10% Off)
Black Diamond cams are the gold standard for rock protection. They are invaluable for trad climbing, mixed climbing, and building top rope anchors. We reviewed the new Camalot C4s when they first came out.
These cams are 10% lighter than its predecessor, which is huge weight savings. Beyond that, we love the trigger keeper tech on the larger sizes and that Black Diamond added color to both lobes and the webbing, making them easier to identify on your harness.
Technician Approach Shoes: $101 (25% Off)
In our review, our tester noted, “The Black Diamond Technician is a tight-fitting, sticky, and sensitive (yet supportive) approach shoe with an athletic feel. Available in men’s and women’s, it falls on the light side for a trail-oriented shoe, so it works best with sport climbing or lighter trad climbing loads on approaches short of true alpine.”
