Gold standard camming device.

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

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!

    • 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.

            Work-Horse Cam

            The Standard

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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

            Bomber pro as the kids say

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            C4s are the backbone of many a trad climber's rack, and they are rightly so. I love the expansion range the double axle design gives the cams, I love the durability of these bomber pieces, and I love the simplicity of their design. Such a well designed invention, no wonder they are a tried and true staple of the cam industry!

            Solid

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            These are some of the best all around cams. Learned to climb with these cams and have owned them for years. I need to resling a few through Black Diamond but after that they'll basically be new again!

            Classic.

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            If you're looking for a solid, easy-to-use, convenient and color-coordinated trad rack, start here. These cams are sturdy and strong, can be used tons of times and then still continue to work exactly how they're supposed to. I lead my first 10+ the other day and relied on mainly 2s and 3s to get me up in, despite my few hangdogs on these cams. Felt safe the whole time, even in sketchy situations. I'd recommend this pro to anyone.

            Literal Life Saver

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            Took my first ever fall on gear last week. My foot slipped unexpectedly and while in mid-fall I realized like I never had before that I wasn't on bolts anymore. After being caught I looked up in horror, not quite ready to accept that I was still alive and well, until I saw my #3 still right where I had placed it. These things hold like champs and inspire confidence. I anticipate taking more falls on the c4's in the future and trust that they'll continue to keep me alive. I'd recommend them to anyone.
