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 29 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Pro I Know I started climbing in the late 1960's and we used Chouinard pitons and carabiners ... then nuts and hex's and we managed to get up some pretty amazing walls. Then came Friends and all the wonders of fast protection. So when Camalots came along, I'd seen a lot of devices. But in my opinion, Camalots are THE current standard because of their range, weight, reliability, and design. My rack is pretty much all Black Diamond at this point. I have full sets Camalots at my side whenever I'm roping up. Black Diamond is a company I can trust to keep me and my gear state of the art! October 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A bomber piece of protection. I'm happy I bought it I have a whole rack of C4s and C3s and I like them a lot. I like the sizes .5 and up the most. The smaller pieces I find hard to place, but maybe thats just me. August 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gold Standard Indeed Indeed Camalots are the industry standard for cams. They hold in the rock significantly better than other units that I have used and owned in the past. Through the years my rack has shed and gained different filler pieces of gear, but BD camalots have stayed strong as the workhorses. When climbing high--or not so high--above gear, there isn't anything I rather have below me than a BD camalot. August 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love ' em! These are consistent and strong. They have caught me every time and make pushing my grade that much more easy on the mind. Great design. August 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yup, "The Gold Standard" BD Calls these the "Gold Standard" for camming units, and they're right. For my guiding and personal climbing it is what people are most familiar with. Durable, light, trustworthy, wide expansion range...the C4 has it all. The only competition they have on my rack is from BD's own X4 in the .5 size. August 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Standard I have used my rack for 3 years and they have not had any issues. I love the quality and ease of use. I would recommend them to anyone. Even a Pro from another company told me in a clinic to get these over his sponsors brand. no brainer July 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Range and Motion Obviously the increased range of the double axle is a huge selling point of these cams. When first learning to place trad gear this greater expansion range makes the learning curve a little less steep. I also just appreciate having a little more "wiggle room" when I am at the end of a pitch needing to build an anchor and only have a few pieces of gear left on my harness. The trigger motion is also incredibly smooth compared to some other SLCDs on the market. July 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Standard I've falled on these cams quite a few times and never been disappointed. When I look around at other climbers, these are the cams their rack is full of. July 7, 2014
