Francis Charlesworth, Programme Coordinator NZAC, reviews the Zone Climbing shoe from Black Diamond
We’re the greatest dreamers about what could be, and the harshest of critics about what exists.
Black Diamond is a company that’s not just for rock climbers and skiers, 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 standard 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 a product of the fact that each of us are climbers and skiers ourselves.
Because of this, the creation of Black Diamond is a process that will never end.
