Still the gold standard in camming devices. Superb construction and functionality; large camming range; competitively priced — I cannot imagine a better all-round cam.


  • Camming range
  • Great trigger action
  • Durable
  • Solid feel


  • Prefer X4s in the small sizes

Rack up with a set of C4s and your confidence will take a leap up — there is simply no better all-round cam. Great design and construction, 4 lobes for maximum grip, perfect camming angle, biggest camming range, smooth trigger action, a thumb-loop for stability when placing, pretty colours and years of on-the-job performance. There's no other cam I would rather fall on. 

Supplement your C4s with a set of small narrow-head cams (master cams; x4s or aliens) and you are good for anything!


Amazing Cam!!! The action on BD's cams are incredible,…

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

Amazing Cam!!! The action on BD's cams are incredible, you can control each cam lobe with incredible precision. The expansion range on BD's C4's is a huge relief when your pumped and ran-out. I will definitely pick more C4's up!!!

Since their introduction in 1987, Black Diamond Camalots have undergone three generations of refinement, while continuously proving themselves as trusted partners on the racks of climbers worldwide. Their patented double-axle design created a range of placement and strength unequaled by any other camming device-critical advantages that are still preferred 17 years later. BD has developed a technology in their head designs and cable stems, offering the greatest opportunity for solid placements by utilizing a larger expansion range. Significantly lighter weights than past cams, better flexibility and smooth action make the C4 Camalots the best protection available. CAMALOTS COLOR RANGE STRENGTH WEIGHT #.1 Camalot

The gold standard for camming units, the Black Diamond Camalots double-axle design allows retraction of larger cam lobes, giving them a much larger expansion range than traditional single-axle units.
