  • BLACK DIAMOND C4 Camalot, # 2

    Black Diamond's new C4 cams offer the greatest opportunity for solid placements by utilizing a larger expansion range. A whole rack of C4s require one less piece, saving you a whole pound - that's a lot.

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND C4 Camalot, # 2:

    The latest generation of camalots has seen significant improvements. I have 14 year-old camalots ALL of which are still remarkably smooth, unlike my wild country, aliens, wired bliss and metolius cams.(Those others still have various valid strengths though, and arent bad). While others have caught up close to BD on expansion range with good holding power, most of them are still a bit lower in range, though they are often lighter. The weight improvement of the latest BD cams, particularly in the mid/larger sizes, and the new stem design are what I appreciate the most in the newest version, despite the fact that they are still not the lightest. I find myself taking along the larger cams with less apprehension than before with the lower weight penalty.

    Personally, I think these are the the best cams for most rock types and general use in the mid to larger sizes and am now changing out all my cams to the latest version sized BD #1 and larger. #1 BD and smaller ones I'm mixing it up with others.

      Comments about BLACK DIAMOND C4 Camalot, # 2:

      I use these cams in the rocks I have around my house here in Nagasaki. This cam seems to walk way less than other single stem cams I have used. They have an exelent caming range with large lobes. I would like the dog bone to be a little longer.

      Despite high cost, and bulkiness, the Camalots are byfar the most versatile piece of pro that you will own. They fit an incredibly broad range of crack sizes, and will never let you down.

        Nice cam! As always - the quality, fit and function is what I have come to know and expect from BD a-far back as when they were Chouinard equipment. Always dependable products made of quality components warrantied well a well. Smooth operation, like the double axle design and color anodizing of different sizes.

              Great range, easy to place, durable. It doesn't really get any better. Recommend sizes .3-3, 4+ if you're climbing cracks out west.

                Comments about BLACK DIAMOND C4 Camalot, # 2:

                BD makes the best cams in the larger range. The 0.75-4 are simply inmatched in performance. For the much larger sizes I'm torn between the BD #5,6 and the equivalent Wild Country Friends. The small sizes (0.3,0.4,0.5) are all good, but I prefer aliens personally.

                  These are some of the best Cam's I own, I've been gradually converting the majority of my rack over to these cams because of the superior quality over all ofther's I've owned and played with.

                    I have placed these cams in shallow pockets and flared cracks. they hold up better than any other other cam out there. placement is key. they are easier to place and you will know if its not good. they also hold if there is a not so bomber palcement.
