Climbing Equipment  Chalk CLIMBING - EQUIPMENT - Chalk



Chalk BagChalk is basically magnesium carbonate powder and carried in a small bag [pouch] and is attached to your waist belt or the waist belt of your harness. The climber uses the chalk to dry sweaty fingers, thus improving their grip and climbing performance especially on harder grades and where the holds are only small.

Chalk BallIt is recommended to use chalk balls instead of chalk blocks or powder.

The chalk bag should have a good drawstring to prevent spillage and lined with a fleece material as it makes it easier to coat your fingers.
