BD mourns the loss of alpinist Chad Kellogg

Wednesday, September 7, 2016
The Black Diamond family would like to send their deepest condolences to the family and friends of alpine climber Chad Kellogg, who was killed by rockfall last Friday while rappelling Cerro Fitz Roy in Patagonia. Chad was a close friend and climbing partner to some of us here, and a huge inspiration to many others. He will be remembered not only for his prolific resume of alpine climbs and first ascents throughout the world, but for his truly genuine nature, infectious energy and unequivocal passion for exploring high places. Rest in peace, Chad.
