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. These 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.

Great starter pack for new trad climbers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

An essential package if you are just getting into trad climbing.

This plus a set of nuts will get you going.

BOAT. The greatest.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are and will continue to be the standard of a good trad rack. Strong, light, and classic.

Thumbs up for thumb loops!

    Building a trad rack can be pricey. The C4 package is a great jumping off point and a lot of climbers swear by the BD camelot. I too enjoy sliding them into cracks and the thumb loop helps you feel like you can ease them in, even when the pump is setting in.

    Great Rack Base

      Black Diamond c4s are an industry staple in the cam world, so it makes sense to build the skeleton of your rack with a bunch of these bad boys! The 0.5-3 range cams are very very crucial to a rack and they are fantastic for LCC quartz monozite.

      I did. You can do a lot of alpine routes with these and a couple passive pieces and plenty of slings

      Thanks for the review Kristin! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

      Love at first sight

      Are you on the sharp end and need a security blanket? Reach down and plug a C4 and your spirit will be renewed. These are tried and true, best friend on the wall. I've had a long and beauty relationship these babies. Treat them well, make sure they are tucked in nice and snug in a crack, and they will return the favor.

      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.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      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.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      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

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      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...

      Black Diamond Cam Package

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

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