Camalot C4

There are many reasons why most climbers rely on Black Diamond's Camalot C4 to save them when they fall. Just look around world-class climbing destinations like Yosemite and Indian Creek, and you're bound to see trad racks filled with Camalots. That's because this best-selling and most-trusted camming device boasts the original double axle design for an unparalleled performance. Double axles provide a larger placement range to give you more opportunities to place each cam in cracks ranging from offwidths to tight fingers. The double axle design also allows you to place the cam passively like a stopper. The Camalot also features a continuous cable stem for strength, an ergonomic thumb loop for easy handling, Black Diamond's patented sling for long-lasting durability, and a trigger with stops for easy cleaning.

  • Gold standard camming device for trad climbing
  • Double-axle design for extra-large expansion range
  • Double-axle design works as cam stops
  • Large thumb loop provides a clip-in point for aid climbers
  • 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

Try and get the recent once made in USA

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

the USA made are a better quality,

Just got 11 and the Chinese ones look cheap compared to the USA made, if you can wing it, get some USA MADE.

Some I got this week are made in 2014, others up to 2018..

Luck of the draw with backcountry stock

don't all the recent recalls with BD have to do with their products assembled in the USA? btw they are moving manufacturing back to the far east...

Learning how to trad climb with my new 0.3-3 BD rack. So far so good! Placed mainly along Cascade granite and basalt in the PNW.

Hey Kelley, you single? Maybe we could go for a climb and a beer sometime?

C4’s rock!

But you already knew that. It was time to double my rack when they released the 2019 set, and the 2018 set was on sale. Not quite as light as they would be in a perfect world, but there’s always the option of buying ultralights, and then not bitching.

perfect

great size to add to your .5-3 rack

Gold Standard

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Even with the advent of the updated Camalots, these are still the gold standard in climbing protection. They have some of the widest range on the market and instill confidence when placed properly. You can't go wrong with this item, especially with all the sales you can find now with the new version coming out.

The Cam lobes on these are a perfect

    I second that! Industry standard!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I learned how to trad climb on BD Camalots. I love climbing with these cams in the desert and on granite. There is always a use for in between sizes, but I can always seem to find places where these cams work. BD is also always trying to make things better and lighter weight, but these are classic and I can't imagine I'll be needing to replace them any time soon. They'll be lasting me a while!

    This is a great option if you're looking to get into trad climbing. It will give you the experience to get familiar with sizing and opens a while new world of rock climbing vocabulary once you start "speaking in sizes." Naturally, when my rock climbing friends are over, my roommate can't understand a thing we're saying. We're just fighting about baggy 3s and toight 0.4s!

    Can't Go Wrong With the Camalot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are always the go to. I recently purchased a #5 and #6 to hopefully get into wider stuff and I'm excited to try them out.

    The Industry Standard!

    #5

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Used the C4 #5 out in Vedauwoo and in Devil's Tower. Worked extremely well and easy to use and set!

    Thanks for the review, Trey!

    0.5 - 4 make me happy

      I'm not sure how Black Diamond does it but the sizing of the C4's are incredibly intuitive. I have a single rack of metolius and a single C4 from 0.5 - 4 camalot. It seems that more often than not I get sizing correct on a placement in c4 faster than in Metolius given the larger camming range. That being said Metolius is my preference in the smallest sizes. Overall a great value .

      awesome

        Cams alot! have 3 of each so I would say they are good.

        #1 Cam

          the only cam I trust my life with.

          The standard of cams

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Black Diamond c4's seem to hold the standard among cams.
          I've used most other brands and none seem to function as smoothly as these.

          trustworthy

            These cams are great, easy to place and very reliable!

            Classic, reliable, and BOMBER!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            No hype, no bull, exactly what you'd expect from BD products. Such peace of mind when you locate solid rock, just park the Caddie, clip n go, send, and enjoy the view!

            Wide cracks? Perfect!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I've been using these cams for years and they continue to impress me. The ranges are much more forgiving than other brands that make cams this size, making these cams the go to for all sizes offwidth.

            Wide cracks? Perfect!

            Work-Horse Cam

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            The Cam lobes on these are a perfect logarithm, which means - when placed appropriately, they will save your life with an evenly distributed force into a rock. The pioneer of trad-climbing, these cams have evolved over time to become the safest active pro on the market.

            The Standard

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            There's a reason these things are the standard. Durable, reliable and bomber.
