The gold standard for camming units, the Camalots’ double-axle design allows retraction of larger cam lobes, giving them a much larger expansion range than traditional single-axle units. Because loading forces are shared between both axles, this design has the strength to work as a full-strength cam stop, allowing the cam to function as passive pro if it walks back into a wider part of a crack and umbrellas. This is the third generation of BD Camalots and they just keep getting better—they are 30-percent lighter than the originals, the cable loop and trigger are easy to grab, and our slings are large enough to manipulate with gloves.

• Double-axle design offers widest range for each cam unit.
• C-Loop continuous cable stem design is strong and durable.

Black Diamond's new C4 cams offer the greatest opportunity for solid placements by utilizing a larger expansion range. A whole rack of C4s require one less piece, saving you a whole pound. (That's a lot.)

Black Diamond Camalot C4 #1 Reviews:



Bought this to replace a 16-year old #1 Camalot - not that I couldn't keep using it, but these new ones are WAY cool. For those looking to start a new trad rack, Camalots are a good starting point. I suggest a set of Camalots and double up the rack with other cams to fill in - Link cams, Aliens, and Master cams work great (did I say double? I may have triple...) Get 'em on sale, kids... be patient!

I love all the BD C4s, they are the core of my trad rack. If you have doubles in all BD C4s, you can climb just about any established trad line in Arkansas. Very sturdy, durable, and confidence inspiring.

My Favorite Cam

This is my favorite size and brand Cam on the planet. Wouldn't be without it on any route - from a few hundred ft slab climbing to Grand Teton... this is the bomb!
