Description

The gold standard for camming units, Black Diamond Camalots' double-axle design allows retraction of larger cam lobes, giving them a much larger expansion range than traditional single-axle units. They are lightweight, the cable loop and trigger are easy to grab, and our patented slings are large enough to manipulate with gloves. Accept no substitutes.

  • Double-axle design offers widest range for each cam unit
  • C-Loop continuous cable stem design is strong and durable
  • Color-coded for easy identification and wide range of sizes
  • Neutrino Rackpack available for easy racking (see Carabiner section)

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 and Camalot X4s 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.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just keep getting better and better. I've been using Camalots ever since they came out. The first ones were great and they just keep getting better. July 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Go with industry standard I don't need to say it but I thought I would anyway. these things are the best out there. They are the industry standard and everyone know it so why buy any other cam that has not been put to the test like the Camalot has? Everything works flawlessly, and when you can get one of these in a crack you can sigh in relief knowing your set. May 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Camalot C4s are the bee's knees Purchased a couple extra C4's to compliment my trad rack. Love and trust camalots! I have taken falls on a number of different sizes and they have always performed great. Highly recommended. May 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth trigger, easy to place, easy to clean...and they work! BD cams are the only cams I trust! I especially like the time tested Camalot. I have taken several unexpected leader falls on these guys and they have always held! The trigger is smooth, the cams are easy to place and they are easy for a second to clean. I truly believe that these cams are the gold standard! April 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's already stuck! I've only owned my new number three for a week and it's already fixed on a route. "What should I do I can't get it out dad?" Golly gee wiz it, I think to myself. I just bought two more number three Camelots. "Just climb Jacob I'll just have to buy two more." You see that's my policy. Every time I loose one, break one, or get a number three Camelot stuck, I just have to replace it with two more. April 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome I go through at least 1 full set of cams each year. I use them in the desert and on the granite. The cables eventually wear out and break, the plastic stems eventually crack and prevent the cam from working but overall no other cam works better. So if you use and abuse them like me, expect to buy lots of them. If you rarely use them and keep them out of the desert, they will give you more years than mine! Rob Pizem March 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best cams These are hands down the best standard cams out there. The double axle allows for increased range which is very important. The sizes overlap pretty well with only a few exceptions which only really matter in Wingate sandstone. Camalots are generally pretty easy to place and remove due to the trigger action whereas some cams have a tendency to get stuck or walk more easily into poor placements. DMM made dragon cams to copy the C4 but the dragon cams have a much shorter stem which makes removal more difficult. In anything but a shallow placement this will make the cam more difficult to remove and more likely to be irretrievable. As is advertised, "the gold standard for camming units." I couldn't say it better myself. For smaller cracks I like to supplement my rack with some small offset cams and C3's. Additionally, you can be sure that BD will back all of their products, an attribute that is becoming rare in the industry. January 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bomber Saved my life! There I was hanging it all out there, I was moving like a, well I dynoed for a gaston, high stepped on a sloper, then well u get it! Airborn I was! Bomber #6 camalot saved my life! Use long runners kids! December 1, 2014
