BORN IN CALIFORNIA 
Black Diamond Equipment’s history dates back to the late 1950s, when climber Yvon Chouinard began forging and selling pitons out of the trunk of his car in Yosemite Valley. Chouinard Equipment was soon established in Ventura, California. 
 

Black Diamond Equipment was born on December 1, 1989, when Chouinard Equipment Ltd. was purchased by a group of former employees.
 

Black Diamond has always led the way in gear and lighting innovation, and continues to set the pace for technological advances, be it ballistic materials in their pack, hydroforming ice tools, carbon fiber shafts in trekking poles or double-faceted reflectors in their lanterns. The result is gear far superior in design and performance to anything else out there.
 

When you shop at Adventure 16 you’ll find a wide selection of specialty outdoor gear from industry-leading companies like Black Diamond. Companies who walk the walk and spare no amount of effort or innovation in utilizing the latest technologies and materials to produce quality gear. Come in and check us out. You’ll find A16’s staff to be the real deal too!
 

"Conservation and preservation are foundational to Black Diamond. These tenets are part of the mission of BD. We will always strive to protect access to the mountains, crags and desert landscapes where we pursue our sports."—John Walbrecht, President of Black Diamond.

There’s a ‘Squatch in these woods…
 

What’s with A16 and Sasquatch? A16 does love to #KeepItHairy with a good #SquatchWatch. What’s not to love? #Squatchy is #wild, #funlovin, #adventurous, #elusive, #mysterious, #legendary and incredibly #amusing.
 

Have there been any sightings of Sasquatch in Southern California? Glad you asked! According to Southern California Amateur Bigfooters (S.C.A.B.), there are “countless stories of Sasquatch in SoCal dating back to the 1700's. Early Spanish Missionaries wrote about them in their journals. There are about 100 sightings of Bigfoot a year in SoCal alone.”
 

What about  recent sightings? A quick Google search reveals that #OldSquatchy has been sighted near Riverside, Corona, Camp Pendleton, Anza-Borrego, Warner’s Ranch, Lancaster, Palmdale, Escondido, Fontana, the San Bernardino Mountains, Barton Flats, Twenty Nine Palms, Desert Hot Springs, Hemet…and basically anywhere people gather in the wild to party and drink.
 

It’s all in good fun. To read more about this elusive creature, try the Cryptozoolog Museum website.

Till then, #StaySquatchyMyFriend!

Pacific Crest Trail Association

The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is an officially designated National Scenic Trail stretching 2,659 miles from the California-Mexico border, through California, Oregon and Washington, to the U.S.-Canadian Border.
 

“It reveals the beauty of the desert, unfolds the glaciated expanses of the Sierra Nevada, travels deep forests, and provides commanding vistas of volcanic peaks in the Cascade Range. The trail symbolizes everything there is to love—and protect—in the Western United States.” 
~ The Pacific Crest Trail Association
 

The trail can be enjoyed as a day hike, section hike, via horseback or as a long-distance, thru-hike lasting about five months.  However you choose to traverse it, the Pacific Crest Trail offers a unique opportunity to travel through some of the most extraordinarily scenic, wild and remote landscapes of the western U.S.
 

As a SoCal-based specialty retailer, the Pacific Crest Trail has always been near and dear to A16 and we support the PCT and PCTA in many capacities, including acting as Trail Angels, shuttling hikers, making gear drops, hosting PCT events and educational clinics, raising funds via donations or support of PCT merchandise, and advertising in the PCTA Communicator.
 

The PCTA champions the needs of the Pacific Crest Trail, dedicated to the notion that their hard work to protect, preserve and promote the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail is a precious gift to future generations.
 

THE PACIFIC CREST TRAIL ASSOCIATION MISSION STATEMENT
“The mission of the Pacific Crest Trail Association is to protect, preserve and promote the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail as a world-class experience for hikers and equestrians, and for all the values provided by wild and scenic lands.”

At A16 we feel fortunate to have had a meaningful relationship with the folks at Patagonia since Yvon Chouinard started the company in 1973. And before that, we carried Chouinard climbing equipment. 
 

Patagonia has a well and hard earned reputation as the most environmentally responsible company there is. Although the products they make certainly do damage to the natural environment, their footprint is relatively small for such a large company, and they spend substantial company resources to inspire, teach and push others (including competitors) to protect and conserve wild and not so wild places throughout the world. They also work to reverse damage from those who have gone before us. That includes natural fresh water rivers, lakes and streams. 
 

The Patagonia Small Fry Fitzroy Trout, or as we fondly call it, the “Fishroy” sticker tells this story in a simple, clean and artful way.
  

PATAGONIA MISSION STATEMENT
Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.
