Black Diamond Equipment
Here at Black Diamond it's all about climbing and skiing. We share the same experiences that you do on rock, ice and snow and these experiences push us to make the best gear possible for our worldwide family of climbers and skiers.
What began with a backyard anvil and a hammer has grown into a global company with offices on three continents that's not just for rock climbers, but one that stands for the spirit of the sports we live, their values and goals, past, present and future. Since 1957, our innovative gear designs have set the standards in numerous areas. This is partly the result of dedication, desire and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people. It's also the result of each of us being climbers and skiers ourselves.
We're a company of users. It's who we are. We're the greatest dreamers about what could be, and the harshest of critics about what exists. Because of this, the creation of Black Diamond is a process that will never end. The company today is more committed than ever, thanks to the many people here in the U.S. and at Black Diamond Europe whose limitless energy and hands-on involvement have created a promising future for all climbers and skiers worldwide.
Founded in 1998, Walltopia is the world's biggest manufacturer of artificial climbing structures, operating on 6 continents through offices in the USA, UK, Canada, Germany, Austria, Russia, China, UAE and Asia Pacific, and exporting to more than 70 countries around the globe. Walltopia Headquarters is located in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Innovation has always been our driving force. Not only do we offer the largest range of climbing wall surfaces available in the world today, but also deliver complete solutions to our customers. We take care of everything from climbing gym design to assembly, flooring solutions, holds and volumes, maintenance and inspection.
Temple Coffee Roasters
TEMPLE BEGAN WITH A VISION. After returning home from a lengthy stay in Indonesia, Temple founder and barista Sean Kohmescher opened the first Temple Coffee house in 2005 with a dream of creating a community gathering place much like the temples he visited during his travels. His vision was simple: good vibes, great service, and exceptionally well-prepared coffee. Over a decade later, five coffee houses, and a roasterie, it is still this vision that Temple perpetually strives to fulfill.
At Flashed we are proud of what we do and serving the climbing community gives us a feeling of satisfaction.
The team consists of several individuals that found a company with values like their own and over time they have grown into the positions and roles they are in today. At first, each and every one was a climber. That is the one thing all of us have in common.
Since we are all passionate about the sport and love the lifestyle that comes with it we genuinely enjoy working with people from the industry and are proud that we provide the best products and services we can. Being part of the climbing community for over 20 years across all aspects – from gym construction to designing and manufacturing climbing gear to supporting competitions as well as outdoor events – gives us insight into where the sport is headed and what we can do to make the future even brighter and we are grateful to be able to be along for the ride.
UP rock shoes are produced at our own UP factory. We have over 20 years of shoes manufacturing experience and are equipped with a high friction rubber compound that is fully engineered and processed in California. UP rock shoes are designed for better performance to ensure that your climbing experiences are better than you’ve had before.
Aim higher and UP shoes will take you there.
We are a group of experienced climbers who realized that quality chalk, like a quality climbing shoe, makes a big a difference on the rock. After rigorous testing on and off the rock with the some of the best climbers in the world, we developed a proprietary chalk product that, like a down-turn climbing shoe, truly gives every climber that extra edge toward success. That's why we truly believe #chalkmatters!
