bulk chalk?

hey, just wondering where can buy bulk climbing chalk at a discounted price... a $15 bag barely lasts 2 weeks...

i dont want to compromise quality, but when u climb on rock every week, u may as well stock up for the year ahead...

You can buy it from pottery stores much cheaper. It is a finer grain than normal climbing chalk..some like it, others hate it...goes by the name Magnesium light...comes in 4 kg bags

Bought some of the pottery stuff but found it too slippery compared to the climbing stuff. Piper or Antho got the rest of the bag.

Re: bulk chalk?

I use it for the woody under the house but for outdoor I use super chalk, while i find it okay, I find it dosnt seem to stay on hands as long normal chalk so prefer the other stuff for longer routes....since your doing "fake" climbing and can chalk up after you 2 moves it might be okay.

Last time I bought got it for around $12 a 2kgs bag so might be worth trying just in case?

My local climbing shop can get in 5kg of "wild stuff" climbing chalk for a similar price... Im going to check out what it's like, picking up a 1kg bag next week.

I think is you puting it in ball bags the mag light will work okay...its when you just dip you hand in it its seems to give to thick a coat for good grip...thast my excuse anyway.
