"Noticeable Difference. I started on FrictionLabs Unicorn dust. When I ran out I just used some block chalk I had laying around from a friend. With the block chalk I felt like I was constantly refilling my chalk bag and it didn't feel great on my hands. I finally broke down and ordered another bag of FrictionLabs chalk. This stuff is amazing and I will never go back. It just feels cleaner and lasts longer."

      Gorilla Grip chalk

      I got this as a gift for my brother after seeing all the other good reviews so, I’ll have to see how he likes it. But I’m pretty sure he’ll be stoked to see such a high quality gift heheh. 😌😁 The packaging was nice and it seems like he will put it to good use since he rock climbs a lot. It did seem like this particular chalk is on the chunky side, which is what it’s made to be, so it’ll be good choice if you prefer that over really fine or really chunky chalk. The bag also seems pretty full so you’re getting what you paid for. Overall it’s a pretty nice gift idea for rock climbing friends or family members! Would totally recommend.

      I'm Stuck on Gorilla Grip!

      When a friend of mine first introduced me to Friction Lab's climbing chalk and told me that he had spent over $20 for a 10oz bag I thought he had fallen for the greatest advertisement ploy since bottled water. I mean, what could possibly make this chalk so special...chalk is chalk...right?


      I tapped a bit of this magical powder into my chalk bag and had at go at a route I had been working on for several days and figured if I was going to feel any difference in grip, it would be at the sloping crux of this steep nemesis that had successfully spit me off my last three attempts.

      I clipped the fourth bolt, took a deep breath and dipped into the bag of hope and had a go. To my surprise, the hand stuck! I matched dipped again...slapped my hand on my pant leg and moved through the next sequence with relative ease. Did the chalk make the difference? Did the stars simply align that day?... I'm not sure, but what I do know is that I have not used another brand of chalk since that day!

      A Miracle in a bag?...maybe not, but a great product that delivers?....Absolutely!!!
