Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freaking Fantastic Chalk I was in the same mindset of chalk is just chalk as the other climbers are, until I tried the Bam Bam. My hands sweat a TON and I used the unicorn dust(super fine version of this same chalk) for a while and I was still chalking up 3-5 times on a single route that was 45-55 feet tall. When I bit the bullet and decided to give the Bam Bam a shot it made a world of difference. Now I chalk up MAYBE once on those same routes, and I was able to climb them WAY better because I wasn't using so much energy to stop and chalk up so much. Most of the time with this chalk I only chalk up once before I start a climb. Soooooooo worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Buy It Seriously the best chalk ever. I thought chalk was just chalk. This stuff really sticks to your hands instead of coming off on the hold which means you go through less. The Bam Bam is my favorite but every version is great. I've used it in the gym and on super hot days at the crag and it's great. The smallest bag will last you quite a while. Just buy it! Yeah other brands are cheaper, but they don't work as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic chalk , and worth every cent The best chalk money can buy!!! I felt rock solid on every hold on my project , this chalk is almost like cheating it gives a great feeling and crumbles nicely. Well worth the extra money , plus i use way less chalk then before. Top quality , you'll never use ordinary chalk again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually worth it I didn't think chalk formulation would make a difference in my climbing until I tried this stuff. I waste less, breathe less of it in, and it seems to stick better/longer than cheaper block chalk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chalk Bam Bam is great for stuffing refillable chalk balls. Definitely a confidence booster chalking up with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Chalk This chalk is good. It does everything it hoped chalk would do. I plan on buying it again.
