The roots of Black Diamond spread deep and wide. In fact, beginning in the mid-1980’s, a chance meeting with the psyched climbers of South Korea has now blossomed into one of BD’s strongest partnerships. As South Korea continues to make waves in the global climbing community with young phenoms such as Chaehyun Seo routinely shattering barriers and winning world cups, BD Athletes Hazel Findlay and Colette McInerney wanted to explore Black Diamond’s Korean roots, and experience the now thriving climbing culture that has become part of our global heritage. Check out this beautiful film made by Colette, for a glimpse into the world of South Korean climbing.
