The Cam Your Rack Is Missing

You were heartbroken when Black Diamond announced that they were discontinuing their Camalot C3 Cams, we all were. You knew they'd come up with something to replace it, you just didn't know when, but now it's finally here. The Black Diamond Camalot Z4 camming device is the next generation of climbing cam to enter the Camalot family, ready to revolutionize how you protect small cracks. Starting with an overhaul of the stem, BD created the RigidFlex system, which stays stiff in hand for solid placements, yet flexes to accommodate wandering climbs. Next, they added a four-lobe cam head with the same width as the old C3 cams, meaning you can protect the same small cracks, but with a lighter, stronger piece. For the finishing touches, they added sandblasted lobes for better friction, unique Dynex slings for easy identification, and softer aluminum that bites the rock for greater holding power. With all that, you might find yourself selling your old rack of C3's just to pay for more Z4's.
