          Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Camalot C3 Micro Cam, # 000:

          I got the smallest 3 C3s, and they are working out nicely so far. Great design that appears to be durable and should last a long time. They look like they would weigh more, but they are not bad. They are obviously exceptional for those really shallow tight placements where others dont fit. While the smallest C3 bears loads usually for aid only, I often take some "aid" sized micro cams on long or backcountry free climbs for belays or equalized pro placements. They are strong enough for lead falls if equalized well, and many of us have been in situations where micro fingertip placements are all you get, or else deal with a brutal runout. Spring action is nice and staying smooth on these sizes anyway.

            The c3 is an integral part of my rack. It goes where c4's don't, and provides an fast an easy piece when a nut won't work. Another great product from BD.

              Using the C3 in small cracks instand of a nut works well. Small cracks where you can't use a nut, the C3 will slide wright into and will not walk out. The shief covers the cam where the rock could cut in the to it, making it protected. Don't let them touch the ground in the fall or you'll have to look for a long time to find it. because its small. If you don't like yours, you can give it to me.

                For thin AND narrow crack placements. These cams are a great option when your options are running out (these are good extras once you have a full rack). I would go with the purple one only for thin scars or cracks on climbs with less than desirable pro options. The metal on the head is harder than CCH Aliens and for this reason and that CCH Aliens have increase surface area on 4 lobes, I think Aliens are still the better option. The softer lobes (aliens) are a benefit since they increase the purchase on a whipper (get the blue green yellow for your lower end). I would stick with aliens unless you start having placements that are not only narrow, but slim. These C3's compliment your lower end of the rack. However, for me personally I doubt I will pick up more than the purple and maybe the next one up. The purple has come in good use on some of the tougher climbs with less pro placements.
