    in big tesco stores you can get David Lloyd grip cream, which is like a gel, that dries into chalk-like stuff on your hands, a bit like a bad deoderant?!

    I have mentioned this is previous posts as one of my gyms has banned it -
    Its called liquid chalk - A few drops in palm, rub in for 30 seconds until it dries and sweat proof grip for about an hour....works great!About $8.us per bottle

    Climbers' chalkless chalk balls: a nice little cloth ball that gives off some resiny stuff when you squeeze it. Clean, tidy, very effective, cheap and renewable. About a fiver from your local climbing/outdoors/extreme sports shop.
