Black Diamond Grappling Hook Review
Our Analysis and Test Results
This Black Diamond hook has a big range. It excels on big edges, but also works on smaller ones. It is probably the hook I use most and almost makes the Black Diamond Cliffhanger obsolete (but not quite). The big fins on the base give it great stability and you worry less about it twisting off an edge. These things last forever. I have never worn one down.
There are no major dislikes with this hook. Because it is big, it gets hung up on your rack a little more than other hooks but there is no way around that. Hooks are meant to get hooked!
This is great for any wall with a few hook moves or a ton of them.
At $14 this is money well spent. I am not aware of any hooks that are much cheaper.
