Here's what other sites are saying:

The new Black Diamond CamalotTM C3 cams feature an interlocking cam design for greater placement versatility and reliability.


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.


From aid seams to tip cracks, the five sizes of Black Diamond Camalot C3s have you covered. With up to 30% less head width than any other micro cam, they fit in more places, more securely. Unique thin-profile stems are laterally stiff for slotting in tight placements, but flexible over edges for an evenly dispersed load.Strength :4 kN, 899 lbf (size 000)6 kN, 1349 lbf (size 00)7 kN, 1574 lbf (size 0)10 kN, 2248 lbf (size 1-2)Range : 7.8-12.9 mm, 0.30-0.50 in (size 000)9.0-13.7 mm, 0.35-0.54 in (size 00)10.7-15.8 mm, 0.42-0.62 in (size 0)12.0-18.8 mm, 0.47-0.74 in (size 1)14.2-22.6 mm, 0.56-0.89 in (size 2)
