Unveiling Groundbreaking Insights: UBC’s Climbing Chalk Study Reveals First-Round Results
Flashed Climbing is excited to announce the release of the much-anticipated paper from the University of British Columbia (UBC), presenting the results of the first round of comprehensive testing on climbing chalk. This pioneering study, conducted in collaboration with Flashed Climbing, marks a significant milestone in our understanding of the properties and performance of climbing chalk. The UBC research team meticulously analyzed various chalk compositions, exploring commercially available climbing chalk’s full mineralogical and chemical characterization.
These initial findings are a leap forward for climbers seeking optimized performance and a crucial step in our ongoing efforts to align climbing gear with environmental sustainability. The insights gained from this study will be instrumental in shaping the next generation of climbing chalk, ensuring it meets the highest standards of both performance and eco-friendliness. Stay tuned for more revelations as we continue to push the boundaries of climbing technology.
