Description

On fast-and-light missions and smash-and-grab ascents when weight really matters, the Black Diamond Camalot Ultralight presents a 25% weight savings over the Camalot. With sculpted lobes that account for a portion of the weight savings, the Camalot Ultralight features a dyneema cord in place of a cable with all of the same strength you rely on. A double-axle design allows for the widest placement range possible for each cam device, and color coding makes for easy identification when quick pro is paramount. When light is right, the Camalot Ultralight is essential.

  • Double-axle design offers widest range for each cam unit
  • Dyneema core stem design is strong, durable and low-profile
  • 14mm dyneema tape sling
  • Ergonomically optimized stem and thumb loop for surgically precision placements
  • Color-coded for easy identification and wide range of sizes

cam comparison chart

Cam Comparison Chart

Our range of Camalots is designed to provide protection across the full spectrum of crack sizes, from small incipient seams, to perfect hands, to full-on offwidths. Camalots, Camalot C3s, Camalot X4s and Camalot Ultralights each have their own unique advantages, and a well-rounded rack will likely contain some or all sizes of each cam. Check out the chart to see how the members of the Camalot family overlap.

Camalot™ Ultralight is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these cams! I decided to try these out since I have owned a couple of iterations of Camalots every since the days of the Chouinard twin stem Camalots (which I still have in a box somewhere). I already own a double set of current generation Camalots but the potential weight loss was enticing. Bottom line: The weight savings is awesome. The functionality is great. I have had no issues with these new additions to my classic rack! I'm still going to use my classic Camalots when I need to double up my rack or when weight doesn't matter but these cams rock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone's favorite cam just got even better! The tried, and true BD Camalot is a standard in the climbing community. Everyone uses them for a reason… They just got even better. So light compared to before. Add them into the whole rack, and you have a significant difference! The only thing I did not completely love about these was no trigger stop part on the main stem. Otherwise I think these are perfect! Anyone who is worried about the lifespan, and price… I would still say that it's worth it if you are an avid climber. 5 to 7 years from now, equipment will probably be much lighter again, so it would be time to upgrade anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all around cams! I just returned from a three week trip to Yosemite and took along a double set of the new Ultralight C4 cams to try out. I was biased - who doesn't want to save weight on a climbing rack, especially a big wall rack?! I was pleasantly surpised by how they act and place almost exactly like the standard C4 cams. Some folks asked about how they work for aiding, and my response is that it is hard to notice much difference. I'm psyched with the design and operation of the untis, and think they will hold up quite well. Now to pick up a few more sizes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the camalot you know and love, but lighter We all tend to get into committed relationships with our preferred cams. Once you place them a billion times, it can be a hard sell to switch brands / colors / sizes to something less familiar. So, as a camalot user, I'm really into these cams -- just like what I know, but significantly lighter. Will they last as long? I'm not sure, but with the dyneema fully encased in plastic and the trigger wires protected, they seem built to last. Placing them feels nearly identical to placing a standard C4

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight with same smooth action Just used my new Ultralights yesterday in the Black Canyon. The climb beta said a #4 was optional.....not with Ultralights. The usual back and forth about saving a few ounces didn't come into play. The cams are in the neighborhood of 25% lighter but your perception is that they are even lighter and we all know that climbing is 80% mental. They had the same smooth action as regular camalots.....they are now my Go To on multi pitch trad climbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best is now Lighter The UL Camalot makes my alpine rack much lighter. When looking at the weight of your gear, how many pieces of gear can you say, if you replace it, you can save up to 25%? I don't know of many other areas you can save that much weight. When the loads start to get heavy, this is the cam to grab. I still use my old Camalots for the local crags and teaching (I feel they are probably more durable, YMMV). But when doing a long haul, I grab these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic Made Lighter, Thin Lobes Plus, classic Camalot made lighter, great for trad and aid with the loop. Minus, the lobes are thinner. Yes to save weight but now you have less purchase on the rock for falls and walking. Ideally the lobe edges would have a lip or something to make them wider to match the classic cams width on the rock. Ideal alpine cam and if the lobe edges were wider they would also be a great everyday cam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic cam gone lighter Sizes .75-3 just as advertised. Feels essentially just like a C4, but lighter. Showing wear quicker than my C4s, but that's true of any ultralight gear. The .4 and .5 sizes feel a little different than their C4 counterparts, less svelte in the hand, but work just fine. Number four feels superior in every way. Favorite cam of this size ever. Weight savings is most noticeable in the bigger sizes.
