ABOUT: USE LESS CHALK
Chalk Rebels is on a mission: USE LESS CHALK
We’re in business to preserve the climbing environment. Our primary goal is to reduce the use of loose chalk powder in the climbing community.
Climbing has seen an unprecedented growth in the last decade thanks to the popularity of indoor bouldering. Popularity means impact we can no longer deny. Our once beautiful rock has been bleached by chalk. The art of true on sighting has been spoiled by ticked holds. Chalk-lung has become a thing. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
A little chalk washes right off with rain. A little chalk won’t make you cough like a chain-smoker after a long session at the gym. A little chalk goes a long way. Especially if you avoid chalk powder. Use liquid chalk cream or chalk balls as alternatives. Since I started using liquid chalk cream and chalk balls, I have significantly reduced my chalk use. I can’t remember when I last bought powdered chalk.
You can do the same. Use liquid chalk cream as a base layer. Your hands will stay dry far longer. If you still need a little extra, use a chalk ball instead of powdered chalk. Let’s keep the climbing experience clean for ourselves and for future generations by following these three simple rules:
- Use LESS chalk
- Avoid chalk POWDER
- BRUSH your holds
Join the chalk rebellion. Make the rock smile again: use LESS chalk.
Using less chalk is also good for your finger skin. Chalk dries your skin and can cause cracks, tears, and flappers. We have a whole line of skincare products to remedy some of the problems caused.
