A breakthrough for fast-and-light missions, the Camalot™ Ultralight introduces a 25% lighter version of the world's most trusted camming device. Learn More


On fast-and-light missions and smash-and-grab ascents when weight really matters, the Black Diamond Camalot Ultralight presents a 25% weight savings over the Camalot. With sculpted lobes that account for a portion of the weight savings, the Camalot Ultralight features a dyneema cord in place of a cable with all of the same strength you rely on. A double-axle design allows for the widest placement range possible for each cam device, and color coding makes for easy identification when quick pro is paramount. When light is right, the Camalot Ultralight is essential.

  • Double-axle design offers widest range for each cam unit
  • Dyneema core stem design is strong, durable and low-profile
  • 14mm dyneema tape sling
  • Ergonomically optimized stem and thumb loop for surgically precision placements
  • Color-coded for easy identification and wide range of sizes

Cam Comparison Chart

Our range of Camalots is designed to provide protection across the full spectrum of crack sizes, from small incipient seams, to perfect hands, to full-on offwidths. Camalots, Camalot C3s, Camalot X4s and Camalot Ultralights each have their own unique advantages, and a well-rounded rack will likely contain some or all sizes of each cam. Check out the chart to see how the members of the Camalot family overlap.

Camalot™ Ultralight is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these cams! I decided to try these out since I have owned a couple of iterations of Camalots every since the days of the Chouinard twin stem Camalots (which I still have in a box somewhere). I already own a double set of current generation Camalots but the potential weight loss was enticing. Bottom line: The weight savings is awesome. The functionality is great. I have had no issues with these new additions to my classic rack! I'm still going to use my classic Camalots when I need to double up my rack or when weight doesn't matter but these cams rock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone's favorite cam just got even better! The tried, and true BD Camalot is a standard in the climbing community. Everyone uses them for a reason… They just got even better. So light compared to before. Add them into the whole rack, and you have a significant difference! The only thing I did not completely love about these was no trigger stop part on the main stem. Otherwise I think these are perfect! Anyone who is worried about the lifespan, and price… I would still say that it's worth it if you are an avid climber. 5 to 7 years from now, equipment will probably be much lighter again, so it would be time to upgrade anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the camalot you know and love, but lighter We all tend to get into committed relationships with our preferred cams. Once you place them a billion times, it can be a hard sell to switch brands / colors / sizes to something less familiar. So, as a camalot user, I'm really into these cams -- just like what I know, but significantly lighter. Will they last as long? I'm not sure, but with the dyneema fully encased in plastic and the trigger wires protected, they seem built to last. Placing them feels nearly identical to placing a standard C4

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic cam gone lighter Sizes .75-3 just as advertised. Feels essentially just like a C4, but lighter. Showing wear quicker than my C4s, but that's true of any ultralight gear. The .4 and .5 sizes feel a little different than their C4 counterparts, less svelte in the hand, but work just fine. Number four feels superior in every way. Favorite cam of this size ever. Weight savings is most noticeable in the bigger sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all around cams! I just returned from a three week trip to Yosemite and took along a double set of the new Ultralight C4 cams to try out. I was biased - who doesn't want to save weight on a climbing rack, especially a big wall rack?! I was pleasantly surpised by how they act and place almost exactly like the standard C4 cams. Some folks asked about how they work for aiding, and my response is that it is hard to notice much difference. I'm psyched with the design and operation of the untis, and think they will hold up quite well. Now to pick up a few more sizes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from same great qualities of the C4s I really like this product so far. I have a #3 and #4 in the ultralight version. The cams act and behave like the C4s but are noticeably lighter. The weight saving to increase in price might not be worth it though. Pretty pricey for a single unit, especially considering the metolious ultra light mastercams retail for about $60 each. This product would get 5 stars for me if they weren't so expensive

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic Made Lighter, Thin Lobes Plus, classic Camalot made lighter, great for trad and aid with the loop. Minus, the lobes are thinner. Yes to save weight but now you have less purchase on the rock for falls and walking. Ideally the lobe edges would have a lip or something to make them wider to match the classic cams width on the rock. Ideal alpine cam and if the lobe edges were wider they would also be a great everyday cam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to pro for alpine adventures I've used these extensively for ski alpinism missions in the Western Chugach, and summer alpine climbing in the Talkeetna Mountains. They are amazingly light, and have the same (or even better) feel than the standard C4s. While I still use my standard C4s for cragging (since I have them too), the only durability differences I see are in the lighter weight webbing. Maybe the metal in the UL cam lobes isn't as durable as the standards, but it appears super solid to me. If you only buy one set of cams, I'd HIGHLY recommend the UL Camalots!
