"It might sound crazy to most, but we are serious about donating 100% of profits!"
Few, if any, chalk companies out there are willing to be as open about this as we are. But, we honestly don't have anything to hide. In fact, we want to be as transparent as possible!
We buy our chalk from a prominent chemical company based here in the U.S.A.
The chalk is heat-treated in a hot oven to remove moisture right before bagging. Providing the driest possible chalk for you
Sealed in a air-tight bag with a resealable zipper you can use over and over again
If you don't like our chalk for absolutely any reason, we would be more than happy and willing to give you a refund
Not sourced from chemical manufactures overseas potentially contributing to chemical waste released into the environment
No overseas shipping contributing to more CO2 released into the atmosphere influencing climate change
For those who want to better understand where the idea of why any company would be willing to donate all of their profits, here is the explanation.
On July 25th, 2017, a series of unintended consequences lead to the creation of Beta Climbing. What I experience that day, is every rock climber worst fear. Fortunately, I survived. Here is my story and how Beta Climbing started.
I fell in love with the idea of climbing Yosemite Valley's vertical walls after seeing the wondrous beauty and magnificence of the National Park back in 2014. Common sense says this wasn't going to be easy, so I prepared for the challenge by mastering the needed skill-sets and spending each possible minute training for the massive vertical walls. After a year of training, my climbing partner and I were ready to take on our first multi-pitch climb. We scheduled a four-day trip to Mammoth Lakes, California with the goal of conquering Crystal Crag in a multi-pitch climb on the last day.
Eyes still asleep but excited, we left San Diego, California behind in a cloud of dust. That night, we ate at a local pizza parlor and met the guy who will be joining us in our endeavor. We drew up plans on how to best go about the next four days, and as I settled in the tent to get much-needed sleep I gazed across Lake Mary and at Crystal Crag, feeling determined and imagining myself at the top of the rock formation.
July 25th, 2017
Dawn finally came, and the group was brimming with anticipation. We drove off in an ill-equipped Honda Odyssey down a treacherous dirt road that ended at Clark's Canyon. We got our gear and slowly trudged up the short rabbit trail to the base of the wall.
We took it nice and easy, tackling three routes without encountering problems. As we were moving on to Wild Will's Arete though, I noticed that there were fresh flowers tied to a tree as if they were intentionally placed there. I found out later that someone did indeed die there and the flowers were placed at the site as a memorial. The story? He fell 70-plus feet at the top of the anchor point when he made the fatal mistake of not securing himself to the anchor point. RIP, Ryan N.
