Here's what other sites are saying:

Thanks to its incredibly narrow head profile, the Black Diamond Camalot C3 fits in places where other cams just don't stand a chance. As the cams contract, they overlap with each other's stems to increase surface area and holding power. The C3's sizes go way below the standard to help you protect ultra-thin aid lines and cutting-edge trad climbs. In addition, the C3 uses a unique stem design that blurs the lines between single and double stems. A shroud protects the tiny cables from getting jacked while maintaining the flexibility to handle funky placements where stiffer cams lever out and leave you unprotected.
