Climbing chalk: we know it ain’t sexy, but every climber knows that a performance climbing chalk can make the difference between greasing off a hold or sending your project. We also know you’ve got better things to drop your coin on some over-priced fancy-ass chalk, and that’s where we come in.

Chalk is all we do because climbing is our passion. At Chalk Cartel, we deal in high-quality, high-content magnesium carbonate climbing chalk at an honest price. That’s it. We don’t add fillers, extra drying agents, essential oils or anything else – actual or purported. Every bag of our chalk is processed at our facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico – USA. It’s always “Hecho en Nuevo Mexico” — says so right on the bag.

Chalk Cartel glamour shot slipping on the rock


Every Quarter bag of Guerrilla Grind has the ideal ratio of nuggets to powder that will leave your hands dry and sufficiently sticky with every dip, so you can climb more and chalk up less. Our proprietary manufacturing process digitally modulates our grind to ensure consistency in every bag. This chalk is both dense and meaty without a lot of fluff and no fillers, which means it’ll never leave your hands irritated or itchy.

We keep it simple with one optimal blend that you can score directly from the source online or through our network of cooperating dealers [link to dealers page] in select climbing gyms and pro shops. Our online price is the same as their in-store prices, so whether you’re looking for a Quarter or a Kilo, you’ll always get a quality product without the big-box middleman markup. Our chalk costs 30% less than ostentatious boutique brands, making it more affordable when you throw a tantrum at the rock and pay for the consequences.

Chalk Cartel power close-up

Chalk Cartel isn’t down with publicly traded corporate interests in the outdoor industry and isn’t a broha operation.  But we do dig taking care of the environment. Our kraft paper bags are made of 100% recycled materials and are 100% recyclable to keep ‘em out of the landfill. And because we haven’t forgotten how fun it is to be a kid, there’s a little schwag in every eco-friendly bag. From stickers and temp tattoos to grander prizes by one of our partners, like gift certificates for clothing or gear and even a pair of kickass Atomic “Bent Chetler” powder skis, you’ll always find a little sumpin’ sumpin’.

Whether you’re climbing indoors, working a new route, developing your secret bouldering spot or throwing a garage training session, Chalk Cartel has got you covered. So what are you waiting for? Grab a bag, chalk up, and roll with the Chalk Cartel family.
