The gold standard for camming units, Black Diamond Camalots' double-axle design allows retraction of larger cam lobes, giving them a much larger expansion range than traditional single-axle units. They are lightweight, the cable loop and trigger are easy to grab, and our patented slings are large enough to manipulate with gloves. Accept no substitutes. These Camalots(TM) feature minor cosmetic flaws that in no way affect the use or safety of the cam, typically the anodization is a little off color.

Increasing your chances of grabbing a cam that fits, the Camalot's double-axle design allows retraction of larger cam lobes, giving Black Diamond's cams a much larger expansion range than single-axle units. Because loading forces are shared between both axles, this design has the strength to work as a full-strength cam stop, letting you use the cam as passive pro and adding security if the unit walks back into a wider part of a crack and umbrellas. This is the third generation of BD Camalots and they just keep getting better. They are 30% lighter than the originals. The cable loop trigger is easy to grab, and our slings are large enough to manipulate with gloves. Black Diamond offers a light, high performance set of tools for today's trad climber. Black Diamond's new Camalots have significantly lighter weights, better flexibility and versatility making them better than ever while continuing to offer the greatest opportunity for a solid placement by utilizing a larger expansion range per size. All of our protection, Camalots, Stoppers, Micro Stoppers and Hexes are designed, manufactured and rigorously tested at Black Diamond, meaning you have one less thing to worry about when you're runout, pumped and gunning for the anchors. As always, Black Diamond Stoppers, Wired Hexentrics, Camalots and Camalot C3s are individually tested to half their rated strength before leaving the factory.
