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!!!

Build your trad rack right with the Black Diamond Camalot C4 Package. Black Diamond calls these ten cams (sizes 0. 3-6) the gold standard of camming units, and for good reason too. Its double-axle design gives each cam a fat expansion range for more versatility in different sized cracks, and it makes each cam work passively without adding any weight whatsoever. The C-loop continuous cable stem is strong and durable yet nimble and easy to place, and the thumb loop lets you clip-in directly to the cam when you're aid climbing. Black Diamond color coded each cam for easy identification, which you'll appreciate when you're looking for your final finger-sized cam amongst a plethora of bigger boys on your harness.
