Hi i'm after an old chalk bag bouldering size, from say the 90's etc . Thanks
I must have owned a dozen chalk bags; where did they all go? I've no idea. One of my favourites was a small Petzl one with a small zipped security pocket at its base. Imagine a stressful lead at Pembroke; sort a belay, take in the ropes. Then before shouting "climb when ready" unzip the inner sanctum, extract the well-earned reward, and spark up the ultimate hit. Happy days.
Modern youth! Cut the bottom of leg of a pair of jeans. Stictch a bottom in the cut end and a draw string through the hem plus a hanging loop. My first bag in a fairly recent 1983
I've got an old Lyon Equipment multicolour small chalk bag, pretty sure it's nineties vintage. In pretty good nick actually. Fluoro pink, purple, yellow etc. Yours for postage and an appropriate donation to Woodhead MRT. Pm me if interested.
In the 80's a mate of mine used a converted Cadbury's Marvel tin as a chalk bag at the Rothwell wall. Not good for landing on!

I might have them, I got one as part of the "set" when I first started climbing, belay device, harness and chalk bag.
I've never used the stuff, but I now have four, usually clearing up the crag of shit people have forgotten and left behind. I found one of them walking home!! I live in the mountains of Oxfordshire, so it a really common sight!
