Patented double-axis action allows the use of larger cams, enabling each Camalot to fit a greater range of cracks

Generous overlaps between sizes allows you to carry fewer pieces and still cover your bases
Single-stem stainless-steel cable with long-wearing nylon tube remains rigid for easy placement and retains flexibility even in sub-zero temperatures
Ergonomic trigger permits individual manipulation of cams and can be pulled easily with gloved or mittened fingers
Fat 1/4" width cams distribute the load on soft rock; overall width of unit is narrow for better placement in shallow cracks
Radiused teeth increase cam durability and holding power
Sewn-on nylon sling simplifies racking and economizes on carabiners

Good solid pro
The Camalots are great for vertical cracks, but the solid stem limits their capabilities somewhat. Good range, but I'll be filling my rack with flexible stems in the future. We don't have a lot of splitters here in NC that eat these things up.

Golden Standard
Just awesome, have had no issues with mine and have no intention of using other brands really. Buy nice or buy twice...

Perfect base for a rack of cams. I carry the 0.5 - 4 and have rarely needed anything else. Solid design and placements are inspiring. They are a bit bulky and expensive but are the gold standard for most camming units.

work very well
I have a half rack of used camalots and even though they are ancient they still work fantastically. They are reliable, easy to place, and durable
