Birthday crack and Rogers roof were incredibly over chalked when I climbed there today. I have never seen so much chalk on and inside cracks before. I swear someone used a spray gun to put so much on these routes. Whomever uses this much chalk should realize it is not magic powder. roger fritz from rockford, IL

I'd call courage in powder form pretty magical.
