Tag of the Day #1992

Calcium carbonate coats every rock on every route, so even if you don’t bring any you’re sure to find the white dust on your fingers after a climb. From this excess of chalk is born #chalktalk, perhaps a burgeoning social network contained entirely in the green mats of the gym. Now and then I’ll find drawings or thoughts scrawled there in chalk – doodles and in-jokes painted while climbers wait for their turns on the wall. The medium could easily develop its own memespace; there’s plenty of inspiration flowing from route names and the rich climber-specific vocabulary everyone picks up as they get experience.

My arms are weary in a loud sort of way tonight – a good way to end the day.

you could feel the sky
