There's a trade-war raging within the climbing and gym community… and it all revolves around liquid gold - commonly known as ‘Liquid Chalk’. As climbing gyms reopened around the country, excited climbers flocked to see whether their lockdown training had worked. Though many were confused when told they could no longer use their bagged chalk, with many climbing gyms requesting climbers only use liquid chalk. Nevertheless, this resulted in a huge demand for liquid chalk globally as retailers quickly sold out.
There are many reasons why Climbing Gyms have demanded climbers solely use Liquid Chalk - but the main one is hygiene. An ingredient of Liquid Chalk is alcohol, thus, climbers essentially disinfect their hands with every application. During a pandemic, purely using liquid chalk ensures that climbing gyms are mitigating the risks of ‘cross contamination’ on holds and equipment. So for the foreseeable futures climbers will be depending upon liquid chalk, but what do you do when it’s completely sold out?
Don't worry, because with just two simple ingredients you can be back crimping your best.
