3) Chalk Powder :

Climber's more often talk about chalk powder and they do use it without fail ! Do u know what is it ? No...No.. it's not blackboard chalk powder or any talcum powder Yeah! It's "Magnesium Carbonate" (MgCO3) which is a famous drying agent !
MgCO3 is most often referred to as 'chalk' , is used as drying agent for hands. This is the same compound that gymnasts, weight lifters and other athletes put on their hands in order to improve friction and grip. Climber's use chalk or Magnesium Carbonate (MgCO3) as a drying agent to keep their hands dry and secure on handholds . Chalk often improves climber's grip on rock surfaces, especially when air temperatures are hot and climber's hands are sweating. Climbers can use powdered chalk that is already crushed into a fine dust , which can be poured into chalk bags. Powdered chalk is often formulated by climbing manufacturers like Metolius with drying agents to increase hand dryness and perhaps create a better grip on holds!

se__27 Have always been fascinated by this #southindian art form that combines colour, geometry and culture in oh such beautiful ways. Women use #riceflour or #chalkpowder to draw these intricate patterns everymorning to adorn the streets.

txsizedhome I just finished painting this cute hutch with my favorite chalk paint powder @bbfrosch! White is timeless and never goes out of style. It has been months since I have painted a piece of furniture! My paintbrush missed me . #txsizedhome #chinacabinet #bbfroschmagic 2w
