      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Big honking crack climbers chalk bag

Recommended Posts

My C&S chalk bag (circa early 90's) finally wore out. It was one of those big ones that you could dig into and come out with chalk half way up to your elbow.

 

Where I can get another one like that?

What?! What sport climber is going to weigh themselves down with a bunch of extra crap in their chalk bag? Unless maybe it was some Gu packets to suck down at the mid-route rest on those desperate redpoint attempts.

 

And hey, person, if you want that thing fixed, DFA's good with the sewing machine. Well, passable anyway. Or you could try http://www.kriegclimbing.com . The guy that owns it is a super nice guy, and he'd probably be more than happy to craft you an elbow-deep old-school number. Probably even get it with Superman on it or something.

My neon speckled Boucher chalkbag circa 1985, with pink palm tree stretch neoprene belt is my most prized article of climbing gear grin.gif. I shall cry when it wears out cry.gif

Okay, so it's a whillans sit harness rather than 2" tube, but that is a stuff sack, and I'm sure it's an oval biner.

Prana makes a big chalk bag. I've got one. It doesn't quite swallow my (skinny) forearm, but it's big enough for my XL hands. They also make a "chalk bucket". That might be big enough for you... yelrotflmao.gif

On low angled granite, I've worn out my chalk bag and harness by sitting on them at belays.
