    Rack up for the thin cracks.

    With the five cams in the Black Diamond Camalot C3 Package, you're covered from fingers all the way down to, 'Well, time for the aiders.' Thanks to a uniquely narrow head profile, the Camalot C3 fits in places where other cams simply won't go. The Camalot C3 uses a shrouded double-stem design to protect the tiny internals while still providing plenty of flexibility for funky horizontal placements. Just like their big brothers, these cams include a thumb loop to make placements easier and to provide an additional clip-in point for aid climbers.

    • Built-in cam stops increase safety in tipped-out placements
    • Thumb loops make placing easier and provide an additional clip-in for aid climbing
    • Ultra-narrow heads allow placements in pin scars
    • Shrouded double-stem design protects trigger wires
    • Color-coded for easy identification
    • Click sizing chart link for range, strength, and weight info
    • Note: size 000 is for direct aid only
    • Item #BLD1061

    Danger zone

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The quality of these cams is awesome. I'm new to trad climbing so I'm still working on my gear placement. These babies are so small its hard for me to tell if I am over camming them. I've used the Metolious micro cams and have enjoyed them alot more because they were color coordinated so I could tell if they were placed well.

    Another arrow in my small cracks quiver

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For the longest time, I was always really apprehensive about purchasing 3-lobe cams because I was under this preconceived notion that more lobes = more security. However, after trying out the C3s during a day of cragging, I instantly fell in love with them. I would never say that 'these are the best small crack cams' but it helps that they work in situations that my C4s, X4s, or Aliens wouldn't work. Get them, and you won't have any buyer's remorse.

    Another good small pro

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    When climbing long thin line it is important to have a variety of small protection. Sometimes TCU goes just fine and fits bomber in the spot no other small piece can protect. Sometimes it is a Master Offset, sometimes an Alien Offset, sometimes C3.

    I like C3 in purple, green and red sizes. These 3 pieces often fit bomber where nothing else goes. Did not yet placed the gray and almost always prefer an X4, or Master or Master Offset in the "yellow C3" size.

    Do not really like the mess with X4's color scheme but it's OK - it took only two days for me to figure out how to mix and rack C3 and X4.

    Good solid protection for small irregular cracks.

    I just wish they were made here!

      I just started aid climbing and I love these things. I have a set of old tech friends as well as a set of C4's. I'm covered for most any crack size but I will be buying another set of these for the really little cracks. The area I climb most is small cracks and a second set of these will round out my rack just right. I've actually hung off the grey one.... these are bomber. I am going to try the small Metolius before my next purchase though.. not because I don't like the C3's, I just have heard that Metolius builds their stuff here in the US and that has been gaining some importance with me and the way I feel about Global Corporations and how bad they have F'd up our economy and enviornment. But I do have a feeling that these are going to be hard to beat..

      Camalot c3's

        I like that the cables are covered, thus protecting them and making the cam much more durable. I have found that these place well and hold very well. I give these five stars. It would be nice if the trigger was easier to pull back, but it isn't much of an issue and I probably just need to keep them cleaner and better oiled anyway.

        Doing the job well

          these cams are very good. i think the three cam unit is a little more tedious to place than a 4 cam unit (master cams). But BD is high quality and they stand behind their products. i love the familiar BD color coding system. And the 000 is aid only - i am not an aid climber and always carry my 000. if it fits, i use it - better than nothing. and bottom line is they are rated higher than alot of the micro nuts i have, and that i will also place if they fit.

          Overall, master cams may fit a little easier the first time in some placements. But these are great cams.


            Before buying these, I heard both praise and complaints about the C3's. I have nothing but praise for the C3's. In my opinion the trigger is not too hard to pull and I don't feel the plastic sheath gets in the way of placing the cam. I have not taken a fall on them yet, but I have all the faith that they will hold if placed correctly.

            Review Title

              By far the most important piece of gear on my rack. The black diamond c3's have an uncanny ability to find solid ground in the most precarious situations. inbredibly smooth camming action and are very sturdy. Never leave the ground without them.

              Best Micro's on the market! Get em' all!

                The Alien micros are a hard cam to surpass but these C3's have done it, and done it well. They run very little, if at all, and the stems are amazing at squeezing into different places and durable as can be. Might as well get all 5 in a package and save money. No complaints here.

                I got the whole set of these

                  Not as flexible as aliens but fit great where they don’t. You can tell that a great amount of testing went into these. They are a perfect complement to the c4s, if you like the c4s you will like these. The smaller sizes I only use for aid climbing and have similar strength ratings to similar sized cams. I'm Glad I have these on my rack!

                  Ok, I'm finally getting the funds to build...

                  Ok, I'm finally getting the funds to build my own rack, the first thing I went for was two sets of nuts, then the C4 camalots for the large to mid range cams, but for the small cams im torn on what to get. Whats better for the smaller cracks and which do you use more often, the x4's, c3's, or metolius mastercams (what worries me about the mastercams is they dont have the beads over the cable like the x4's and may wear out faster)?

                  Best Answer

                  I would suggest to start with a BD C4 purple #0.5 to blue #3 set + blue #0.3 and gray #0.4 X4s. And a set of nuts for sure.

                  There is no "better" small cam. Metolius TCU, Metolius Master, BD C3, BD X4, Aliens - they all are good. Some are better for Indian Creek splitters, some are better for Yosemite pin scars, some bite better, some last longer, etc. There is no "the best overall design". I would say that X4s, and Masters, and Aliens are a good start point but this is just my subjective opinion. Some climbers prefer C3s, other folks are stuck to Zeroes, etc.

                  CAn this package be shipped to Australia?

                  No it cannot be
                  here is a link to brands they cannot ship out of the US


                  how important are these to a beginners...

                  how important are these to a beginners rack, should I get them right away or wait a little while?

                  Probably could wait for these Kevin. I'd suggest getting some experience in and seeing what works for you before buying a package. I really like the C4s, but these aren't my favorite for small cams. But that's just me. Plus nuts work great in these size and are much cheaper and lighter!
                  Hope this helps.
