Following up on the successful launch of the #21 Camalot™ C4, Black Diamond Equipment®, a global innovator in climbing, skiing, mountain sports equipment and apparel, today announced it will be adding the #7 and #8 Camalot C4s to its Spring 2020 climbing collection. Both Camalots are now available at

“We wanted to give climbers fully certified cams in this size range,” says Jeremy Steck, Black Diamond Equipment’s lead design engineer of the project. “We also wanted to provide cams of this size that have been put through the paces in terms of product development and field testing as well as inline production quality measures.”

The current, redesigned Camalot C4 is now 10% lighter, eclipsing Black Diamond’s classic, cornerstone cams, and featuring a more modern design that gives climbers everything they love about the old Camalots but adds new touch-points like a wider trigger for easier handling, and innovative trigger keeper for compact racking with sizes #4, #5, #6, #7 and #8.

Other features include:

  • Innovative trigger keeper for compact racking
  • Sling is updated visually for easier differentiation when racking
  • Double-axle design offers the widest range ever invented
  • C-Loop continuous cable stem design is strong and durable
  • Color-coded for easy identification
  • LiteWire Rackpack available for easy racking

For the month of April, all net proceeds of this T-shirt and #7 or #8 Camalots will be donated to the Access Fund, a non-profit with a mission to keep climbing areas open and conserve the climbing environment.
