The Black Diamond C4 Camalot is a climbing cam for trad, big wall, and alpine climbing. The C4 offers the widest range of sizes in the Black Diamond collection of cams. The double-axle allows them to expand with a wider range than a single-axle unit, so you can take on more rock with less. The color coded Dyneema slings make grabbing them off your rack quick and simple. The Camalot is not the same as Camelot, no King Arthur to be found around here.

FEATURES of the Black Diamond C4 Camalot

  • Versatile cams that are ideal for trad, big wall, and alpine climbing
  • Double-axle design offers widest range for each cam unit
  • C-Loop continuous cable stem design is strong and durable
  • Color-coded for easy identification and wide range of sizes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with C4s Black Diamond makes a lot of great gear and the C4 cams are no exception. They have well-designed lobes that hold steady to the rock, sturdy but flexible stems and the thumb loop that can be used for aiding or clipping draws to. I prefer the webbing BD employs over the extendible slings some other manufacturers use and think that it's more durable over the long haul. I use .5 C4s and above and go with Master Cams for the small stuff and offsets. I don't think I've ever met anyone with something bad to say about C4s (except maybe that they're expensive, but you get what you pay for and the competition's no cheaper).,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomber The C4 Camalot is by far my favorite really can't get a better deal. BD has done a great job with construction...they are versatile, flexible, and strong as hell. Great for all kinds of parallel and horizontal cracks. The large number of sizes really helps you determine the perfect equipment for the right crack! The only beef I have with them is the price, but Moosejaw was kind enough to have a 20% off on all these cams. A definite steal in my mind. Try getting them any cheaper without a pro deal and you are wasting your time. So thanks to BD for making an awesome product and thanks to Moosejaw for making them affordable!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy this product if you want the best cam on the market Yes, there are lighter and less expensive cams on the market but in terms of the overall product, BD C4 cams are the best thing you can buy today. The double axle design makes them slightly heavier than other cams, but they are very strong and can be placed passively if the situation requires it. For mid sized to larger hands, I have consistently found that people prefer the triggering method used here (even Metolius has changed to this design in their new Master Cams). They also have great holding power and with four lobes, its unlikely you will ever rip a well placed piece. I have had great experience with these on both sandstone and granite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would bet my life on the integrity of this cam There is not much to say. I just got back from 7 days of straight climbing at Indian Creek and I can safely say that the black diamond c4's are amazing. Not only are they light, but the double axle design gives them an impressive expansion range which REALLY makes a difference when you are pulling a crux move and need to plug and chug without fumbling around trying to find the perfect size. I took multiple lead falls on my lucky c4 #2, and it did not budge an inch. Among the group of 4 rock climbers that I climb with we have close to 80 years of climbing experience, and we all agree that c4's are completely dependable and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Pro for thise medium sized placements. Triggers: Smooth, and the wire doesn't typically get in the way when you're placing / retrieving them.,,,,Lobes: Color coded so you can see which size you want when they're on your rack. Don't feel as "sticky" as some cams with softer metal, but they stay where you put them, provided you know what you're doing. The cutouts reduce weight, and allow for use of a nut tool to manually trigger them if you break a trigger wire or your buddy overcammed them in a crack.,,,,Webbing: Standard, bomber.,,,,Stem: The plastic works to protect the wire, but can crack from use. No biggie, it's not structural.,,,,Overall, it's a very well designed, bomber piece of gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Range! These things are great. The range is very large compared to other cams, the .75 camalot is as big as the 5 metolius but retracts to the size of a 4. ,,,,They are strong (14kn) and durable, just look at how many old camalots you see on other peoples racks. ,,,,Comparing them to the metolius cams I can say the metolius master cams have a narrower head which allows them to go in a few more places, a more flexible stem and have a bit more holding power (due to decreased range). Overall I would go Metolius Master Cams from 00-4 and Camalots from there on up. But the Black Diamond C3's are great as well and even narrower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection in Cam form What can I say about these things that hasnt already been said? When I think of a cam, the BD Camalot is exactly what comes to mind. All I have for standard size cams are C4s and I love every one of them. They all fit so perfectly in horizontal and vertical cracks, and, with the exception of ridiculous off-widths, there is a C4 size for just about every standard crack out there. But once you get down to the .3 size, you might as well switch to ailen microcams. So, by every size crack, I mean anything big enough for a .3 or bigger. You get what I'm saying. These things kick butt. I would not change a thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Gets the job done! Well, I am relatively new to climbing, but these CAMs are so incredible from many points of view. 1st, the cool factor is incredible, which is very worth mentioning. They just work so well. The other aspect of using these CAMs is that they are very easy to place. The only disadvantage is cost and weight. The more I use these CAMs, the more I like them.,,I like them so much I'm working on getting a 2nd set, so I have 2 of each. I have the .2 through .5 of the X4s, and .75 through #3 of the C4s. I've read several reviews that say to move to the C4s when you hit the .75 size. I'm going to double up on all of them. I guess I also need to step up and get the #4.
