  • Cam lobes and sewn-on nylon sling are color-coded for easy identification

Weather and Wind:

  • C-loop continuous cable stem is strong and durable; rigid stem makes for easy placement, yet remains flexible even in cold weather


  • Double-axle design continues to offer widest range possible in each size.
  • Newly designed cams and stem contribute up to a 20% weight savings per size


  • New patent-pending C-Loop stem uses a continuous cable, offering tremendous strength and flexibility
  • Ergonomic trigger permits individual manipulation of cams and can be pulled easily with gloved hands

Pick These

I've got cams of every brand on my rack. The BD's are the most user friendly and have the biggest range. If you're tempted to save a few bucks and get another brand-don't. These are very ergonomic so you're less likely to drop 'em. Also, with their bigger range, you're more likely to have a piece that will fit when you need it.

So far so good

Ive only used it a few times but so far I am loving it. The small profile and width mean it fits nearly everywhere (at the gunks anyway) and never thinks about getting stuck. I've got a {0} and it is light and handy.

very nice set with a good rang of expans

This set is a very good beginning for someone just getting into trad climbing or if you are replacing old gear. C4 are my primary set of cams with a mix of C3 and links.

only pro to run on trad

I had the metolius tcu's which are an aid climbing favorite but for the average to avid traditional climber the Black Diamond Camalots are the best feeling and easiest to use cams out there...

nice cam set

90% of my rack is BD. I have always felt the most comfortable with black diamond. wish they were still made in the USA.

Bomber Cams, Huge Range

Fantastic Cams. I used them alongside Metolius Master Cams and preferred the C4's every placement.
