Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $59

Summary

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

Pros

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

Cons

  • 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!

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!!!

The Black Diamond Camalot has been the go-to camming device for more than a decade. So how do you make it better' You give it an even bigger expansion range, you make it 30% lighter than before, and you add a thumb loop to make one-handed placements seriously easy. The new design is so good that two of the half sizes were eliminated because they're no longer needed. The Camalot C4s have won award after award and have become the standard for any serious climbers building up a rack. Whether you're freeing big walls in Yosemite or sending splitters in the Creek, this cam has everything you need.
