There's just something special about this chalk! I can't exactly put my finger on it but it seems more "chalky" than other chalks I've used. I love it's pure white color, definitely my favorite color for chalk. The block breaks up nicely into powder with a satisfying squeaking noise. It easily blows off my fingers after application, which makes me look super cool. I will definitely use this chalk frequently as it seems to be equally good for bouldering in the gym, trad climbing on granite, and sport climbing on limestone.
