/ Chalk bags for Children?
Only an idea, but could you not get a standard/small chalk bag and stitch some furry pink material to it?
Quite cute not sure how big it is.
the TinyClimb chalk bags are being advertised in the premier posts ATM.
on facebook too.
It's important to toughen up their lungs from a tender age, so they get used to living in a magnesium carbonate smog.

nice one, chalk!?!?!?!
You don't imagine they'll be climbing outside, surely?
do 4 1/2 year olds even sweat ?
The only time a kid that age should sweat, is when they're sweeping chimneys.
Nice bag hope she loves climbing with it.
And as for my high horse, well, if berating people for using chalk on V Diffs is a high horse, then I'm happy to keep on riding it, because the fact is you don't need chalk on anything below E3 (and even then not on every move) - and it's a principle i've stuck to all my life - we're talking about a country with an average temperature of around 13 degrees, not Yosemite.
And if mummy and daddy use chalk on V Diffs, then of course their kids will follow example and do the same - soon people will be chalking up to open the boot of the bloody car!
So maybe Mr Instructor - you should spend your time educating your clients on the suitability of chalk usage on the crag, as compared to an indoor wall - instead of playing moral guardian on the use of profanities.
Could you produce a table for me of, perhaps, grade of route/temperature/body fat percentage of climber, that will allow me to know when you think it would be acceptable for me to use chalk?
Thanks for the plug Ian :)
The Pink long hair Yeti is my best seller. I also do a short hair version.
I can also make them smaller or larger if people want.
OCD climbing do bespoke bags too (to the OP)
Your chalkbags do look excellent - well done! However, my 4 year old was stuck on the Winnie the Pooh one (see ebay thread above)). Shame really, maybe a range of that sort of stuff?
To the posters regarding use of chalk. Yes, my daughter does like to copy daddy (who is prone to sweaty body parts) but performs best on the campus boards and overhanging grit when wearing chalk. It's the future, resistance is useless...
Will be getting one of these for my 5 year old daughter. She too likes to mimic her dad at the wall.
To those that say this is an 'adult' forum, I don't remember any age verification. Regardless, is it really required to resort to swearing if you have a well argued coherant basis for your arguement? I doubt you would use such language if this discussion was happening in a pub or at the local climbing wall?
