"I'm very pragmatic, I do things just if they make sense to me. I was sceptical when people told me that FL chalk is better. I doubt everything first before the difference is proven. So I did a test on the same boulders, the same day with different types of chalk. I got convinced. FrictionLabs chalk really does make a difference." Photo: Becoming 9a+/5.15a by Chris Hanke
