Awesome Micro cams

By Nicholas

from Big Sky, MT, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Camalot C3:

These are my favorite of the micro cams. I have used wild countrys, metolius master cams & TCU's, aliens, X4's, trangos etc. The C3 is definetly my favorite. They fit pretty well where 4CU's don't and where 4CU's do. The shape of the lobes actually reduces pressure on the rock because of the taper. Tighter placements have more surface area contact on the rock which makes your cams less likely to rip out. I have whipped many times on these cams down to the 00 size and I have never had an issue with them. I have even whipped on them with only 2 lobes engaged and the cams held. Some people are wigged out by the flat stem shape but it really doesn't matter. The stems just bend when you fall on them and then they return to their normal shape eventually. Perhaps the best thing about these cams is they just don't get stuck. I have never used any other cams that clean out of over-camed placements like these do. They are so light and reliable, I hardly ever do a route without them.

Trust 'em, they're bomber.

By Quin

from Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Camalot C3:

These are great micro's. They stay well placed even when pulled up and down by the rope as you climb above them. They can rotate up and down, but never seem to walk much. Took me a while to trust them like I do my c4's, but now I love plugging them in. My one complaint is that the smaller sizes seem a bit limited as far as placement goes; The rubber casing that protects the stem and wires gets wider as it moves away from the lobes. This prevents the unit from being able to be placed as far into a crack as I would like sometimes. Haven't had any problems with the red and yellow though. Still worth filling out your rack with though.

Sweet tiny cams!

Comments about Black Diamond Camalot C3:

These things rock in small features, especially horizontals. Really nice addition to Aliens and TCU's to cover your butt on thin face and tiny cracks!

Perfect for well....Everything

By Ben

from Missoula, MT, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Camalot C3:

The C4 is the proven, hard working, and all around leader of small cams. From desert grime to ice and rain I have never had a problem with these cams, an essential to trad climbers and alpinists alike Black Diamond killed it with this one.

Love 'em!

By Damien

from Montana, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Camalot C3:

Tiny cracks, flares, these little cams seem to fit many places where no other piece will work. I find the stiffness of the C3's great for slotting into finicky placements. Irreplaceable in my opinion.
