The Black Diamond Camalot X4 is a rock climbing cam for fitting into smaller cracks along your climb. The six sizes provide a wide range within each individual cam due to the stacked axle in the smaller of the three and double axle in the larger three. Inside the cams, the springs are embedded to create a super narrow head width. The nifty aluminum armor beads protect the cable from abrasion while remaining flexible as you move up the wall. As always, Black Diamond finished off the X4 with lightweight Dyneema slings for speedy identification of size and series.

FEATURES of the Black Diamond Camalot X4

  • Versatile cams that are ideal for trad, big wall, and alpine climbing
  • Double axle (0.75, 0.5 and 0.4) and Stacked Axle Technology (0.3, 0.2 and 0.1) provide huge expansion range
  • Designed with a narrower head-width than than the original Camalot, the X4 fits in more places than ever before
  • Aluminum armor beads protect cable stem without compromising flexibility
  • Symmetric swage and Hot-forged trigger bar eliminate buckling and provide ergonomic handling
  • Lightweight and durable Dyneema sling for easy identification and differentiation from other Camalots
  • Black Diamond's Oz, HoodWire and Neutrino Rackpacks are decent for easy racking

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's an Alien The X4s, with their super flexible stem, have that same uncanny ability as Aliens to find placements that shouldn't exist. With more durable metal, they might even outlast my Aliens. Even better, once the placement was secured, the piece never walked until I took it out. I'll keep the C3s around for the one or two placements where *only* a C3 will work, but I think that the 4-lobed stability alone is worth replacing the C3s on my rack. ,,,,The big bonus is that they are $10 cheaper than Aliens, so they might make be better investment for leaders building a new rack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ugh I hate these! but on the plus side they do make me feel safe. My husband actually was the purchaser of these and so he usually places them and I end up having to clean them (I use aliens on my rack). Anyway- I can never get them out!!! Ugh I have gotten so frustrated over spending probably hours total trying to get these out of horizontal and vertical cracks (although it seems to take longer with horizontals now that I am thinking about it). He is not overcamming them either- although maybe he didn't use slings...anyway I prefer the C3s and aliens over these (of which we have both). When I led with these it did make me feel safe however, knowing that there is no way this thing is coming out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prodigious Pro If one relishes his or her feeling safe on rock faces, especially walls in the desert, the X4 needs to be an essential tool in a climber's rack; although Black Diamond certainly boasts a wide variety of sizes of C4 and, in the case of smaller cams, C3 Camalots, no cam--regardless of brand--fits as well into desert cracks and tips cracks like the X4. Once more, the X4 bends with ease, allowing one to feel safe when he or she places protection in places where one knows a fall will invariably result in a cam's bending. This flexibility coupled with a longer range and an easy-to-place trigger create a tool that sets a new standard in what one can climb. Apropos: while many climbers have, for years, viewed a standard rack as a set of nuts and cams, the future rack will demand that the X4 not be seen as additional protection, but as "must have" tools to ensure safety and success on crags and in the greater ranges.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cool, but not convinced I bought a .75 to see how the X4s stacked up against other small cams I've used and see whether I wanted more (especially the new offsets). It's a really cool device and it seems like the expansion range IS all that. However, on the first day out I placed the X4 midway through a short single-pitch route. I used an alpine draw, but left it doubled. In retrospect, I should have extended the draw, because horizontal pull put a decently annoying kink in the cable that I had to bend back. I'm still not convinced they're worth the premium but could see myself buying more as doubles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent range I have a few Metolius Master Cams in small sizes, but I still opted for a full set of X4's from sizes .1 to .4 based on great reviews. I already have C3's in .5 and up, so I didn't feel the need to get the .5 and .75 X4's even though they have a slightly more narrow head than the C3. I'm super happy with my purchase. I find that the range of the X4's is superior to the Master Cams, however, the masters have more grooves on the lobes (X4's sizes .1-.3 have smooth heads), and I find the masters feel as though they get better purchase on the rock if it has some texture on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from X4 = greatness Everytime I get to use an X4 its like I'm opening presents on Christmas Day. These guys have unmatched range and flexibility. They are more stiff than the Metolius Master Cams, however this I find is actually a good thing because it helps you place it easier and makes it easier to pull out after a climb. A great add on to an already full rack. I would not advise completely switching some camas in a rack for these...but they're a great lightweight addition and worth the money. Great work Black Diamond

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get peace-of-mind on those narrow placements Always a fan of BD hardware. Just bought a batch of 4 X4s (.1-.4). The narrow cam head is a real life saver when you are scrambling to get the desperate placements in.,,,,For me, these cams were especially helpful for breaking into the realm of leading .10s at the Gunks. In those thin horizontal placements or small solution pockets around the crux, the C4 heads ended up being too wide. The X4s bridged the gap nicely. When you're scared, pumped, and don't want to fiddle around with thin nuts, grab that X4 off your rack.,,,,Lost one star because of a defective axle in one of the units, but I know it is not indicative of BD hardware as a whole after using their gear for years. BD has been the mainstay of trad climbers' rack, and the X4s will help keep it that way. Now if only they offered offsets...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The X4s rock I've only placed it a few times but the flexible stem and covered cable are a great addition to the BD small cams.
