A whole new universe of placement possibilities can be explored with Black Diamond’s new C3 micro cams. In smaller camming units, placement options are dependent on head width. With up to 30% less head width than conventional designs, Camalot C3s fit in far greater places more securely. Our patent-pending interlocking design uses compact, overlapping cams, allowing for solid placements that will not lever out in narrow constrictions or pin scars when free or clean-aid climbing. Patent-pending compression drive springs push each cam with significantly greater force, which means they hold better than traditional springs found in most other camming units. Because each cam is driven by a different spring, each cam is truly independent, so they excel in flaring, irregular (non-parallel sided) or shallow cracks. Our C3 cams boast huge cam stops, preventing over-rotation and offering excellent umbrella strength like our double-axle units. A C3’s stem design offers superior flexibility and strength—laterally stiff for tight placements but soft as a noodle over edges. Better flexibility from stainless steel cables disperses load more evenly, minimizing deformation and making the unit inherently stronger. With better real-world placement possibilities, the new C3s will change the way you climb.
