Designed to help you consistently climb at your limit, FrictionLabs chalk is made for climbers, by climbers.
This is not the same old white-labeled generic chalk climbers are used to. Responsibly refined in Denver, CO USA and stripped of all unnecessary fillers, FrictionLabs chalk gives you unrivaled moisture absorption and skin health. Like a high performance climbing shoe, our high purity Magnesium Carbonate makes a single application far more efficient, giving you the extra edge to focus on sending not slipping.
#chalkmatters, and we've helped thousands of climbers, from new climbers to FrictionLabs Pros finally find a chalk they can rely on, on every move. Never chalk up mid-crux again!
From using a cheap crap chalk to gorilla grip. I can feel the difference between the two and its a big difference. From chalking less and the way my hands feel after chalking are astounding. Gorilla grip is gonna be in my chalk bucket for a long time.
I’ve only been climbing for a month now. My buddy introduced me to FrictionLabs super chunky chalk and I’ve really loved it. Chunky is better than fine in my opinion. I use less of it at a time and and it has less of a tendency to end up flying into my eyes... or the eyes of the by standers below!
always the best.
Awesome experience ordering chalk. It changed my life.
Works like a charm for indoor climbing
So far I have only used the unicorn dust, but this stuff is rad! Does its job and keeps my hands dry
The chalk is awesome! It doesn't dry out my hands as much during the winter months, but I can still send really hard! The shipping was fast and I was kept in the loop with the tracking info.
I always get the Super Chunky Bam-Bam. It's by far my favorite chalk out there. Even in the humid summers of Kentucky, this chalk keeps my hands dry. Thanks a million Friction Labs!
I’ve been a metolious user for years & for the last 3 or for years have been using friction labs on & off .. now I occasionally buy a bag of metolious chalk & I can definitely feel the difference .. in a world where everything’s about conditions every advantage helps !!! Well done FrictionLabs!!!
The package hasn't arrived but I expect the items to be excellent
We don’t buy any other chalk. This is it!!
Gorilla Grip feels really good all around. Even application, good hold, and stays on for a really long time. Really solid chalk!
love the chalk and I can definitely tell a different in quality!
I’ve always used fine chalk (in a chalk sock), but on a whim decided to give Gorilla Grip a try, and I love it so much I’ve ordered it on subscription. Great stuff.
Prefer this chalk to other brands
I recently bought a 10oz bag of FrictionLabs Unicorn Dust. This chalk works really well. I find it lasts longer and provides a better hold than the other chalk I was using. I would recommend giving this product a try!
Not only is it the best chalk I’ve seen, but the company is so helpful. Great customer service and support. Go Frictionlabs!
As good as it gets! Have not found a better chalk out there and I believe I would be hard pressed to.
I purchased Unicorn Dust as a Christmas gift for my brother after seeing multiple websites listing it as the best chalk out there. When my brother opened it up, he was thrilled and agreed this was the best stuff! Glad I went with the larger size.

Nothing else on the market compares to the quality of chalk that friction labs has created. Regardless of the blend, I’ve never disappointed. Amazing product!
Friction labs unicorn dust is the softest, smoothest chalk. Never gritty or hard. It coats my hands so well so I can stick every move. Thanks Friction Labs!!

I love the feel of the thin chaulk, it sticks great

FrictionLabs has definitely been my favorite chalk to use. It doesn’t have any weird smell and it has a beautiful silky smooth texture. Love it
High Performance Chalk
I just used the secret stuff for the first time. As advertised it coats you hands well and very evenly with chalk, so good marks there. But for some reason I thought it would last longer than other stuff does. After a few warm up problems I noticed I no longer had any chalk on the tips of my fingers and this was in my 30 degree garage woody. So basically it works exactly the same as regular chalk, which is totally fine. So just know your getting a great way to put a starter coat on your hands but will need to continue to chalk regularly afterwards.
Also got some secret stuff with order and provides a great base of chalk.
I just used the unicorn dust today and it really helped with my clamy hands! It really stayed on my hands and helped with my grips.
Compared to other chalk brands, this by far is the best chalk I have used.
I’ll always use this chalk
This is some of the best chalk to use. Worth the money, it lasts longer and helps you climb harder
This has been the best chalk to use. I always have an extra bag on hand to give to a friend who needs some and truly believe out of all the different climbing chalks I have tried this is the best stuff. Keeps my hands dry but doesn't crack the skin like so many others. Thank you Friction Labs for making this great product!
So stoked to finally have consistency in my chalk and the driest hands I have ever had. I am a total believer!
very good purchase experience
This chalk is such high quality, typically when im bouldering I last half a route and then i have to apply more. With Unicorn Dust I can last 2 routes at least with a full coverage.
I have quite sweaty hands and the chunky chalk lasts so much longer and I grease off things much less often. Would definitely recommend
Friction labs! Armed with the power of your mighty unicorn chalk, I (top-rope) sent my second 5.12a in my history as a climber. Feeling unstoppable! #climbyourimpossible
Thanks for the great chalk!
I literally use this chalk everyday, and I melt every time I do, cuz I love it so much. It stays on my hands for ages. As matter of fact, the last time I applied it was 2 weeks ago, and it’s still on! 10/10 would recommend
Best chalk I’ve ever used by far. Don’t hesitate, just hit the buy button and get ya some coming!
Love this chalk, totally worth the extra cost.
The CHUNK. I couldn’t go back if I tried. It’s so good once it hits your lips.
it's chalk, it sticks
Title says it all. It's nice, and I like it, but it takes up more space than I expected in my chalk bag. Not a bad thing...just something to be aware of.
I had never used loose chalk before, and so when I first bought this after my friend told me about it, I was skeptical. But now, it's the only chalk I use, and I would definitely recommend it to others looking to buy reliable loose chalk.
I've had good chalk, bad chalk, smelly chalk, liquid chalk, block chalk and plenty in between. My search ended once I tried FrictionLabs. There could be comparable chalk out there for less, but I don't care to find it.
I am new to climbing so I ordered the Chunky Gorilla Grip chalk and have been nothing short of thoroughly impressed! The chalk stays put on your hands instead of transferring to the rock, is easy to manage in a chalk bag, and easily washes off in a sink! Much impressed!
My order got shipped the same day I ordered, and arrived incredible quickly. I have used chalks from other brands and the high performance chalk is by far the best one I have used
High Performance Chalk
Best check I have ever used
I’ve been climbing for over ten years and in that span of time, I haven’t found chalk that works nearly as well as what Friction Labs has got. Take my unsolicited beta and give this chalk a try — you owe it to yourself.
Is it really worth the money? I don't know but I do know that performance matters to me, so I'm willing to pay for the best. It seems to work as well or better than any chalk I've ever used.
Worth the loot.
Dank ass chalk for your sweaty parts! Doesn’t clump up on your hands, if you use it there... nice. Any word on demos in Chattanooga anytime soon? Slopers steal your chalk fast down here.
Worth the extra money compared to other chalk brands.
Stays on longer. Better friction.
This chalk is amazing. the highest quality chalk I have used. Friction labs is high quality.
I really didn't. I thought it was just a ploy - an annoyingly successful marketing campaign from some Colo-rad-bros that backed a generic product that everyone else was making. I didn't think it couldn't be that much better. How could chalk get any better? I was amongst the numerous disbelievers. I was coaxed into trying a friend's for a day in Maple last summer. Quartzite cobbles are hard to hold in the summer heat, especially the small, slopey cobbles in Box Canyon. I then returned to my then tried-and-true: Metolius Super Chalk. I now regard that as one of the biggest mistakes of my life. Every time my hand dipped into my chalk bag without Friction Labs, it was as if a dark, sweaty veil was being pulled over my hands. A veil that perhaps had been there my entire 17 years as a climber. They had seen the light; felt the power of impeccable friction - there was no going back. They say you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone. Luckily, buying Friction Labs is easier than getting an ex-girlfriend back, or whatever 'they' are referring to. I've seen Friction Labs chalk as an invaluable tool in my climbing ever since that fateful day. Do yourself a favor and buy some.
Don't overthink it, just buy it! Your hands will thank you later.
By far the nr.1 chalk. Everything else feels like cheap shit compared to this. Sticks to your hands much longer than the rest. Only problem is once you tried it, you’ll never use anything else.
Hands down the best chalk out there! The secret stuff liquid chalk is also amazing for drying out the hands real good on those hot greasy days!
I always thought that chalk was chalk until I tried Friction Labs. Bam Bam is basically my soulmate, and I can't imagine using anything else now!
Love this chalk.
Dipping your hands into a pool of frictionlabs chalk is a very satisfying experience. Where you expect the feeling or chalk, what you actually get is the feeling of silk. It coats the hands in a thin, uniform coat that reliably does its job and lasts long. Incredible stuff, plain and simple.
If the Sticky Bandits ever get out of prison, they'd be happy to know there's a chalk that'll live up to their standards. All three flavors work great at drying your hands and sticking you to holds, but it really is just personal preference how smooth or chunky you like. Sampling all three, I'd say I like the Dust for refilling chalk balls, and Bam Bam or Gotilla Grip for the gym pot. They are all the same though, just a little more OCDing to get the chunky ones crumbled. A+ rating on the formula. Mainly, the Gold product that's available from BD just leaves my skin in sub-optimal healing conditions. My skin feels normal after use with Friction Labs. They got me.
Love the super chunk, this chalk is next level sh@t!
High Performance Chalk
Definitely recommend the Gorilla Grip chalk feels unlike anything I’ve used before. Sticks on to your hands like magic. And the monthly subscription is definitely worth it.
One less thing to remember. Chalk bags in every crag pack, gym bag, car door.
Love the secret stuff
Love not having to go grab the chalk and just getting that sweet sweet friction delivered to our door
I love your chalk. I use gorilla and unicorn and they both soothe my hands and help me send hard. Thanks!!
We went to Red Rocks last month and realized right before we left that we were out of chalk. No worries our Friction Labs delivery came just in time. Thanks for the helping me ascend Mr. Moran. Check @teslascender .
Hey Guys - the chalk itself is always awesome. Only complaint (very minor) is that the packs I have received in the past (ordering direct) come with next to no air in it and HUGE chunks. Almost a solid block. This was more on the unicorn dust side with a ton of air. So was the one ordered from Backcountry. Maybe a bad batch? Packing issue? Still a good product. Just wish I got the usual standard with the premium we pay for a premium product (as described). Other than that thanks guys!
I was a little skeptical about the cost of this chalk, but it is definitely worth every penny. I love it!! New favorite chalk, probably will never buy anything else
It's my new favorite chalk I've ever used!
