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.

Reviews

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Truly the gold standard These are the best cams by far. All other cams are either a copy or inferior. February 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great cam Great all round cams they are cheap, easy to use, and robust there is not much else on my rack then them the only problem with them is the none flexible stem January 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by There should only be BD cams! These are far and away the best cams on the market. They are so easy to place and bomber if placed properly. Just place it, clip in and move on, start worrying about your next moves. It's gotten to the point that I started thinking about crack sizes as according to the BD cam color scheme. The fact that they made biners to match the cams makes it that much easier to grab and go. November 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seriously, no rating needed they remain the gold standard These are simply the best all around cams. The thump loop/ clip in point is a great feature and the action remains firm but not too stiff across lots of use. Keep them cleaned and oiled and they will last year in and year out. For 90% of climbing you don't need anything different. Weird pockets and pin scars may call for a specialty piece. As a climbing instructor I look around and few of my peers have anything different for their workhorse pieces. November 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tried and true As everyone knows the best cam on the market. Hard to beat'em when you need a peice November 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top gear Very good quality, easy to place, and easy to hold, much more easier than the Dragon from DMM. October 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good one I can compare to Wild Country Technical Friends. And Cams are little bit better. October 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good expansion range and trigger pull. Pulling the cables on the C4 is a lot easier than some other cams. I've got a set of metolious master cams 00-6 and they are a heck of a lot stiffer. I still like both cams, but C4s are much better for bigger stuff. October 3, 2013
