ENGINEERED CHALK

At Black Diamond we pour all of our engineering resources into every project, whether it’s redefining protection like our cornerstone Camalots, or creating climbing chalk you can trust. That’s why we’ve developed a new line of scientifically engineered chalk that utilizes Upsalite. Developed in Uppsala, Sweden, by researchers in nanotechnology, Upsalite is an amorphous and highly porous form of magnesium carbonate that can absorb more than 10 times more moisture than regular magnesium carbonate. By incorporating Upsalite into the formula of our new Black Gold, Pure Gold, and Liquid Gold, we’ve successfully created climbing chalk scientifically engineered to enhance your grip.

WHITE GOLD

White Gold is our tried-and-true classic chalk that has been the silent partner and secret sauce on a plethora of legendary ascents, from Honnold’s groundbreaking solo of Freerider, to Babsi’s unprecedented free ascents of El Cap. Uncut and ready to rock, White Gold is additive free and adds friction when you need it most.

PURE GOLD

Featuring a concentrated formula of Upsalite—a scientifically engineered form of magnesium carbonate that absorbs 10 times more moisture than regular chalk—Pure Gold is an additive-free chalk that will enhance your grip. Mix it with loose chalk to customize your blend or used as a pre-coat to optimize your grip.

WHITE GOLD + PURE GOLD = BLACK GOLD

Black Gold Chalk is scientifically engineered to enhance your grip. By combining our classic White Gold, the most trusted chalk on the market, with 10% Pure Gold—a concentrated form of hyper-absorbent Upsalite—we’ve created Black Gold, an additive-free blend of chalk with TWICE the absorption of regular chalk.

LIQUID BLACK GOLD

Liquid Black Gold Chalk is scientifically engineered to enhance your grip. By combining our classic White Gold, the most trusted chalk on the market, with 10% Pure Gold—a concentrated form of hyper-absorbent Upsalite—we’ve created Black Gold, an additive-free blend of chalk with TWICE the absorption of regular chalk. This liquid blend is ideal for adding a grippy base-layer to your hands before setting off on your next redpoint. Added bonus—it’s over 70% ethanol.
