Fixe Crunchy Chalk. 

Fixe has entered the premium-chalk market with their excellent Crunchy Chalk (they’re also selling chalk in block form—$4 for a 55g block). Our tester used it both in the gym and outside on a 12-bolt sport project with still-largely-unchalked holds—the kind that soak up the white stuff on your first few goes. “Crunchy Chalk hit the total sweet spot of a powder foundation blended with perfect little ‘pebbles’ in my bag,” our tester said. “Just a little went a long way, and it was also great for ticking micro-footholds on my project.” In the gym, even with his slidey, hard, slippery skin, our tester found himself sticking to slopers and volumes that would have eluded him with a lesser or overly powdery blend. This is killer, high-octane white stuff. MSRP: $2 (25g), $6 (125g), fixehardware.com
