The Black Diamond Camalot Ultralight Cam is a climbing device for alpine, big wall and trad climbing. When it comes to lightweight, Black Diamond isn't lying, as these puppies are 25% lighter than their regular Camalots. A double-axle design allows for a wide range of placements for each sized cam and an incredibly durable Dyneema core stem is strong, yet low profile for your fast and light adventures. Each cam is color-coded and matches the color of the 14mm Dyneema tape sling at the opposite end.

Trigger wire problemThe trigger wire keep popping off the the trigger of my #3. Many others have the same issues (there's a big thread on MountainProject). It's pretty easy to put it back into place but not in the middle of a route. A bit of duct tape or glue might hold it in place but this is a design problem that should be corrected. I contacted BD and they offered to repair/replace the cam but I'm not sure I want to be without a #3 for a couple of weeks. Otherwise, the cam works well. I have a full set of the regular Camalots and the only other difference is reduced weight.
