Black Diamond Camalot C4 Package #0.5 - 3

Build your rack right.

Incredible expansion range and low weight make the Black Diamond Camalot C4 Package a perfect way to start off any trad rack or beef up an old one. These five cams (size 0.5-3) cover all the bases from fingers to fists. The new Camalots are so dialed that two half-sizes were eliminated because the new increased expansion range deemed them obsolete. In addition to providing this increased range, the double-axle design makes these cams full strength even when placed passively. With all these advances, Black Diamond still managed to decrease weight by 30%, because no one likes weight.

  • Double-axle design for extra-large expansion range
  • Double-axle design works as cam stops to increase strength of tipped-out placements
  • Large thumb loop provides a clip-in point for aid climbers
  • These are 30% lighter than previous Camalots
  • Color-coded for quick identification
  • Includes five sizes from .05 to 3 (loose fingers to fists)
  • Click sizing chart link for range, strength, and weight info

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just started leading trad this year and was uncertain how to start my rack. Conor H. provided stellar advice in helping me build, beginning with this C4 package. These are so easy to use, they have fit in tiny places, big places, and hard to reach places. If you are looking to start building a trad rack I highly recommend starting with this package. I will be buying a double rack of these I am fairly certain :) Just took the rack to Smith for some really fun times this past week. They also helped me up some fun dihedrals in Vantage.

I also bought the X4 package, and those are equally worth starting off with. These are great for the horizontals at the New!

Thanks again Conor!

The Best Cam for this size

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I’m beginning in lead trad climbing and I’ve used different types of Cams, this ones are one of the easiest to use and makes bomber protections. Totally recommended and many betas use this cams for reference so it will be easier to climb with exactly the gear you need in many places. Way to go Black Diamond.

This set is a great way to get into trad climbing. They're durable, sleek, and easy to use. Saying anything more would only be echoing the hundred other five star reviews here. There's definitely a reason that the Camalot c4's are the gold standard in camming devices.

Best way to build your rack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Easy to use, light weight, bright colors.I learned to place gear with Black Diamond Cams and decided to purchase the same kind due to familiarity. Great thus far, already putting in work here in TN

Great way to start your rack.

Great way to start your rack or double the fun stuff. C4's are the truth. The only way to go.

The best cams around

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The black diamond camalots are the industry standard when it comes to caming devices. These cams cover such a wide range from small fingers to hands. The .5 to 3 pack is a great way to start a rack. Living in salt lake I purchased two of these and have been able to climb almost every route Ive come across. These thinks can also take a beating and keep on working perfectly!

Great Came

Liked them so much that ordered doubles.

The bee's knees

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Having decided it was time to invest in some new pieces of shiny metal for my trad rack to go along with my well used Wild Country Tech Friends, I ordered this bundle deal to save some cash.
Broke them in on some trad routes at Red River Gorge (Muir Valley) and fell in love. The head design means you can get them into cracks much more easily than my old Tech Friends due to the head being much more 'slim' when cammed than my old friends. As a result you can get the cam much further into the crack. This allows in my view more placement options.

Smooth action, useful colour coding and great stem design add to the package.

You wont regret adding a set of these to your rack...

    Really enjoyed this package. Great value for package size and what you get. Light weight and easy to carry.

    Unanswered Question

    Are these the C4s made in China? or are they US made?

    no need to die

      you'll never fall using these. so easy and amazing.

      Love at first sight

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This are the best cams I've owed thus far. Super easy to place and super to easy remove. Will definitely be buying another set of these when I can afford to have a double rack

      2nd rack

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Can't go wrong with a BD rack. Solid and reliable. Comes out a bit cheaper than buying all the cams separately. Pair these with the BD Neutrino Rackpack and everything is color coated.

      Happy customer

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Great cams. Dual cam give really good range. Matched them with the BD colored biners and you have the backbone of a good rack.

      beginner pack

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Great price to get a Trad rack started, new to climbing but i trust these cams will catch me when i fall

      No Worries

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Placement is key with all pro. These are rock solid. And you can't beat the price.

      The standard

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These cams are the best medium sized cams on the market. I've used sizes .5 to 3 extensively in Yosemite - they are light, fit well in pretty much any appropriately sized crack, and they are very secure. They are definitely the medium-sized cam against which all others are judged.
