According to gear tester Chris McNamara, "The Black Diamond Camalot C4 is still my favorite one-inch and larger cam for big walls and trad climbs. It works better than nearly any other cam for shallow and awkward placements often encountered in Yosemite and other granite areas. It is very durable and if you look at the racks of accomplished Yosemite climbers you will see this is the cam of choice. For the smaller sizes (below 0.5") Black Diamond has the Camalot C3."
