Black Diamond has recalled about 100 of its Via Ferrata Climbing Sets made in the U.S. due to a potential fall hazard. The sets were sold without the orange safety stitching on the lanyards, and this may allow the ends to unexpectedly detach, posing a risk of injury or death to climbers from a fall. This recall involves Black Diamond Easy Rider and Iron Cruiser Via Ferrata Climbing Sets with manufacturing codes between 5293 and 5350. The manufacturing code is located on a sewn-in fabric label inside the zippered cover. “Easy Rider” or “Iron Cruiser” and “Black Diamond” are printed on the black nylon cover. These items were sold at Camp Saver, Gear Saver, The Gear Coop and other specialty outdoor stores across the U.S. as well as online at for between $90 and $110. Black Diamond has received no reports of such incidents to date, but is asking consumers to immediately stop using the climbing sets, inspect the lanyards for the orange safety stitching, and then contact Black Diamond for replacement instructions.
