CAMP USA Re-Chalk 

$4.46 (25% off, was $5.95)

Even though the heat of summer is mostly gone, things still might get pretty spicy up on your project. The Re-Chalk is a refillable chalk ball to help you keep your hands dry up there. Chalk balls help to conserve chalk, as opposed to dipping your hand into a bag of loose powder, and they also make it less likely to dump out large quantities of chalk as your bag flops around while climbing.
