/ Chalk balls????
Any advise on chalk use would be helpful
How long were you expecting it to last?
You have options:
1)Use less to make it last longer (I try not to use it much because it's bad for my skin).
2) Climb less and become weak.
3) Take the hit (It's only £2 a ball isn't it?)
If you take a good dip as much as most boulderers do, yes, it is probably normal to use up chalk at that rate
Don't chalk any further up than your elbows
yeh, you're using too much
sounds about rite though they don't last long, just get chalk block or bags of chalk then you can create a little cloud of chalk before you start the climb. ;)
No it is weird. If you are using as little chalk as that, your sweat glands have clearly stopped working. You should see a doctor.
My balls are refillable.
