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

Had to supplement my #0.5-3 package

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The first package I had was not enough for offwidth cracks or super thin cracks. I found the #4, 5, .4, .3, perfect Camalots for these needs. Camalot's are addicting. Don't buy one without expecting it to make you want to buy another.

A few new C4s for the summer of climbing.

Best of the best!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Out of all the different cams I have placed over the years, nothing beats the C4. The double axel and durability of these cams cannot be paralleled. The Only thing they are missing is a built in extendable (featured on the DMM dragon cam).

Great cams

These pieces are classic and essential to any good rack. They have really smooth action, making them really easy to place and remove when you're pumped on a route. As others have said, they are easy to overcam if you're not careful. However, as long as you're watching what you're doing, that's easy to avoid.
Definitely recommend!

Gets the job done.

Just ordered the #5 for North Chimney on Castleton. It's simple to place, simple to clean, and it saves my life when I blow the off-width.

Classic Cams

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The cams are classic, bombproof pro. While being some of the most functional and durable cams on the market, they have gotten even better with the reduction in weight. The sole issue I find with these cams is the fact that you can overcam so easily and significantly, thus, per usual, watch what you're doing. As long as you are paying attention, it is easy to avoid, but when learning how these work it is an easy mistake to make. Other than that I couldn't ask for more out of a piece of pro.

Go with the Camalots

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Get the #6, and you'll FIND an opportunity to use it!
No Midwest rack is complete without a big honkin' cam (or two) like this one.

If you're plugging a #6, you might be in an offwidth.
Definitely have been in that situation...without the green boat anchor to ease my mind.

Great Cam

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These cams are amazingly lightweight, which was actually a little worrisome at first, seeing as how they might be saving my life!!! However, just like all of Black Diamond's climbing products they work outstanding. Very smooth trigger and the colors are very vibrant, which makes them easy to distinguish size. Highly recommend these.
