Description

Just when you thought cams couldn't get better, Black Diamond brings out the C4 Camalots.

The Black Diamond Camalot has been the go-to camming device for more than a decade. So how do you make it better? You give it an even bigger expansion range, you make it 30% lighter than before, and you add a thumb loop to make one-handed placements seriously easy. The new design is so good that two of the half sizes were eliminated because they're no longer needed. The Camalot C4s have won award after award and have become the standard for any serious climbers building up a rack. Whether you're freeing big walls in Yosemite or sending splitters in the Creek, this cam has everything you need.

  • Camalot is 30% lighter than the previous model
  • Double-stem design allows full strength when placed passively
  • Wide expansion range means you need to carry less pieces to cover the ranges
  • Thumb loop makes placement easier and provides an additional clip-in for aiding
  • Color-coded for quick identification
  • Click sizing chart link for range, strength, and weight info
  • Best in Gear award from Rock and Ice

Easy as 1, 2, 3!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got the Fingers and Hands package of a 1, 2, and 3 and seems to compliment well the rest of my rack of Metolius cams in the smaller sizes. The expansion range of these is nice. Thanks Backcountry for offering this package. : )

Trust em with me life...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Best compliment I can give any piece of climbing equipment... I trust them with my life. They hold well on all types of rock, and so far I have never had one pop out on me. They get 4 stars because in the smallest sizes I prefer Aliens or small Friends, as they just seem to inspire a bit more confidence. Also, the trigger action on these (while fantastic) feels a bit cheaper than those of the Friends, DMMs, and even the Aliens. But that might just be a personal preference of mine. Attached photo shows me racked up with some C4s on a pretty fun 5.9.

Trust em with me life...

When will you be getting more of the .3's?

Best cams for the desert.

These truly are the best cams for splitter climbing. They do great in windgate, granite, basalt as well as other rock types. They have great action and design. Love them!

Best cams for the desert.

Where are the cams made?

Best Answer Responded on

Our current inventory is made in China, where they have been made for the last few years. BD is currently moving production from overseas to Salt Lake City, UT but they will not be available right away.

Gold Standard

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These cams are the standard for a reason - smooth action, burly double axle that gives more security and range, and has the right amount of stiffness/flex in the stem. I also prefer them to the u-shaped cams because they fit in weird spaces more easily

The Standard

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The C4 has a smooth double axle desgin that performs well when dirty and has a great range. I couldn't be happier. They are ubiquitous for a reason.

Best cam's ever made

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I inherited a lot of gear when I started climbing a few years ago, but I always reach for the Camalot's when the going gets desperate. They always inspire confidence, no matter the size.

Price Increase Beta

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Hi Backcountry customers! Just wanted to reach out and explain the price increase for the Camalots a little bit. After connecting with Black Diamond and getting the good word they have decided to move all production of one of their flagship products from China back to the US. All of the components were always milled/machined by them but the final assembly was done in China. They felt that making the investment to bring all production back in house would be good for the company and good for the greater Salt Lake City community by creating jobs for locals. Hoping that we can all continue to support such a great company even with the price increase.
