Rock Climbing Photo: Mathematical!
1. Yes, I'll do it from time to time
2. When I'm climbing and my hands start to hurt/sting I think it feels good to get a cool breath on them. It's also to remove any excess chalk.
3. I climb a little of everything, but most recently bouldering at the gym.

1. Yes

2. Because when I chalk in a way to make sure my whole hand gets covered it usually leaves a lot of excess on my tips, especially if my bag has a decent amount of chalk. Blow or slap the hand on my pants to get rid of the excess, especially on thin face or slab.

3. Rock climbing, Gomer. Crack, face, slab, steep, thin, wide, trad, sport, bouldering.
