Our heritage at Black Diamond is rooted in alpinism and ice climbing. Over the years, we’ve consistently changed the game by designing and engineering innovative climbing equipment built for frozen mountains and waterfalls. From the world’s first carbon fiber ice tool, the Black Prophet, to the revolutionary tapered-tube and unique thread geometry of the Turbo Ice Screw, we have continuously developed gear that enables winter climbers to push further and higher into the mountains.
THIS WINTER, WE’VE ADDED TO THE LINEAGE BY LAUNCHING OUR ULTRALIGHT ICE SCREW AND THE REACTOR ICE TOOL
THE ALL-NEW REACTOR ICE TOOL
With its open pick angle and leashless design, the Reactor is optimized for pure ice climbing. The tool features a steel head with an aluminum side plate and is compatible with the BD alpine hammer and the alpine adze. The tool’s extruded aluminum shaft is combined with a dual density grip that is adjustable to fit all sizes of hands. The Reactor comes ready with the BD Natural Ice Pick, so get stoked … because winter is coming.
