Black Diamond Castleton Pants

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Built to withstand abrasive chimneys and splitter cracks, these super-durable men's Black Diamond Castleton Pants feature a double reinforced seat, a climbing-specific gusset and pre-shaped knees.


Be sure to wake up early, slide into the Black Diamond Men's Castleton Pants, grab your gear, and head up to the most popular tower in Utah before everyone else in the campsite gets up. Black Diamond designed this pant to handle all the rough wear-and-tear situations involved with desert climbing while still remaining extremely comfortable under the sun. A mixture of cotton and nylon brings a necessary amount of breathability for hiking up to the damn thing, and it's still durable enough to let you hump up those offwidths without a tear. Its gusseted construction allows you to step up past that cruxy section on Kor-Ingalls (you know, the scary section with the slippery calcite foot) with ease. And the three-layer cuffs can lay down flat for more warmth in the North Chimney, or you can roll them up when you're working up a sweat on Burning Inside.


Inspired by the iconic sandstone towers of Southern Utah and designed to handle the abuse those routes dish out, the men's Castleton Pants from Black Diamond are built with a cotton nylon blend canvas for durable yet comfortable performance. Built with a reinforced double seat, climbing-specific gusset and pre-shaped knees, the Castleton Pants hold up to pitch after pitch, while allowing for unrestricted movement on steep approaches and relentless cruxes.
