The fans whir, the bass booms from the loudspeakers and the blocks serve as crash pad depots. This climbing lifestyle, which many professionals celebrate in their videos and which is lived in abundance at the bouldering hotspots, is not only met with enthusiasm.
The program is presented by Bächli Bergsport and Petzl
The bouldering pioneer is someone who specifically questions this development Bernd Zangerl. In the recent broadcast of Lacrux TV we have with him, as well as with the Saxon thoroughbred climber Robert Leistner and the DAV hope bearer Yannick Flohe talked about loud music, whirring fans and the challenging developments at the popular climbing and bouldering hotspots. What does it take to ensure that outdoor climbing doesn't degenerate into a fairground?

Better grip, less chalk consumption
There is no doubt that temperature and humidity have a major influence on friction on the rock. That's why so many climbers now bring portable fans with them to optimize the last nuance at their personal limit.
The choice of magnesium should not be underestimated when it comes to grip. The secret of FrictionLabs is the extra high content of magnesium carbonate. This forms an evenly thin layer on the skin, which ensures optimal friction. In addition, the skin stays dry for longer, which means that re-chalking is not required as often.
