July took the Chalk Cartel team to the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, where we were able to introduce climbers and retail buyers to the new brand with the kick-ass support of Mad Rock Climbing. As Chalk Cartel’s current biggest prize sponsor, Mad Rock welcomed us into their booth and filled their chalk buckets with our chalk to be enjoyed by the many climbers who stopped by to test their skills on the Treadwall. Climbers had one last chance to pick up some free sample bags at the Psicobloc Masters Series, the infamous deep water soloing competition held over the outdoor pool at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City.
