Isn't cartel a bad word?
Despite what the word has come to represent, historically cartel was defined as a coalition or cooperative arrangement between political parties intended to promote a mutual interest.

By supporting our brand you become part of our family, thus strengthening our efforts to provide great products at honest prices and to advocate for our community and our natural environment.
Is your chalk addictive?
No more addictive than climbing. For some of us, that’s pretty serious.
What is Guerrilla Grind?
It’s the sweet spot between nuggets and powder that we have concocted to create the most friction when climbing. Our official nug-to-pow ratio will feel great on your skin and help to get you up your hardest projects. In the spirit of the insurgency, it takes a Guerrilla to fight the power of the 800-pound gorilla and the even bigger 10,000-pound gorilla.
