Climbing Chalk Reviews

I choose four different types of chalk for my reviews and all of them are lose chalk and liquid chalk. I used the block chalk before for rock climbing and it was a pain in the butt to keep on having to crush them. Even though the block chalk is cheaper, I do not mind spending the extra dollar for the convenient and quality chalk. Block chalk is not on the list for this review.

Each of the chalk that I reviewed is different types of chalk. I hope you’ll find it useful for your own athletic journey.

FrictionLabs Loose Gym Chalk – Unicorn Dust, Gorilla Grip, & Bam Bam

Three different texture chalks for personal texture preference designed for rock climbers with the highest quality on gripping control while protecting the skin from drying and cracking.

I love the name unicorn dust. My daughter loves unicorns. We are tempted to get her the unicorn dust just because of its name. However, she would not have any use for it. =(

We bought a bag of Gorilla Grip for my son’s birthday. It is by far his favorite chalk for rock climbing. He loved how his hand stayed dry and more grippy than the other chalk.

Refillable Chalk Ball with 65 Gram (2.3 oz) Capacity, Comes Full

Fine white powdered chalk in a premium grade cotton sock with a drawstring to keep the chalk contained. I generally have the chalk ball in addition to the loose chalk in my chalk bag. I like to squeeze the soft chalk ball after a rough climb especially if the holds are brand new and they feel like sandpaper. The soft chalk ball feels really nice and soft against my hands. It’s like a little massager.

FrictionLabs Secret Stuff Chalk Cream

It is a liquid chalk that dries quickly and leaves a light coating of chalk on your hands. It works great with sweaty hands in keeping them dry. One bottle of liquid chalk goes a long way for at least 100 hundred uses.

It does leave a residue of chalk when it dries, however, the liquid chalk gets into every nook and cranny of your hand and applied thoroughly then loose chalk. It will not leave any sticky residue because there is no drying agent.

Average Customer Rank: 4.7/5

  • Silica-free, clean and non-toxic, pigment-free Magnesium Carbonate chalk for kids and adults
