My only complaint was that even though it is advertised as a block mine came as powder in a zip-lock bag. Works great though.
Great consistency and is in my opinion the best chalk out there. At $10 for the large you can't buy better chalk! All my buddies bum off my chalk bucket when we boulder. Super Chalk and others with artificial additives dry out my skin too much, but this has a silky soft feel to it that keeps my hands dry and feeling good on rock and gym holds. Truly a simple decision and the gold standard of chalk!
As other reviewers have said, it's chalk and it gets the job done!
Chalk is chalk...this stuff works.
no complaints, this is my favorite chalk

Plain white pure uncut ... Wait are we still talking about chalk. (Sniff, sniff) stuff works great... Lol I've always used this brand.
I have a hard time finding good chalk that doesn't feel moist. My favorite chalk is frank endo chalk but they always run out of that chalk and don't make anymore for months. I had a really hard time finding a good dry chalk like the frank endo chalk and couldn't ever find anything comparable until this! It is amazing! If it isn't dry enough for you, you can always microwave your chalk to dry it out more and it works so well!

Chalk is chalk as far as I'm concerned. Have nothing to complain about so it's good...

This is great chalk, it keeps your hands dry and unlike some other chalk the Black Diamond Uncut White Gold Pure Chalk sticks to your fingers well, so you don't have to re-chalk as often.
Chalk is Chalk, This has a good silky feel to it but doesn't feel any different than the Metolius chalk I already have been using.
I've used several brands of chalk since I first started climbing a little over a year ago and found they all dried my hands out like crazy, to the point of cracking around my knuckles.
This chalk does the complete opposite! It dries up my sweaty palms and lets me quit worrying about my painful fingers, now the only pain I get is from the rock, not the chalk. I doubt I will use any chalk other than BD White Gold from here on out.
This is some pretty awesome chalk. I got it from the gym that I go to a few weeks ago, except in the form of a ball. I used to have to stick my hands in my bag like every fifth move, but I can now go up a whole route without chalking more than five times total. As far as I can tell, the ball the chalk comes in is durable, unlike many other balls that I used. Also, I like that there are no added chemicals in it. This helps your hands by avoiding torture and the same with the environment.
This chalk is the stickiest of the ickiest...it's seriously fantastic. I highly recommend it. If you've got sweaty hands, you'll have to layer it up a bit to get the stick, but it still works awesome...I have fairly moist hands most of the time, and I find myself re-chalking, much less often with this. I love it!
I had been using Metolius since that's what my local gym has. I decided to try something new and see what I thought. Man am I stoked! Super smooth, lasts longer between chalking up (for me anyway) and it doesn't trash my hands like the Metolius did. WIN! Will continue to buy
Black Diamond Chalk is so soooo smooooth! It's crazy since it's still chunky that it can feel so smooth on your fingers.
I used this stuff by itself for a few weeks and was pretty darn impressed since I normally go for coarser chalk due to my overly sweaty hands (think super chalk). It was hard for me to tell when I needed rechalking since it was so light and smooth. I hardly noticed the difference in feel between chalk-ups, but you definitely notice a difference in friction with this stuff. Chalk without having to cake it on?!
It's hard to say if White Gold is necessarily better or worse than Super Chalk, in my opinion. They're just 2 very different types of chalk. Lately I've been experiementing with various mixtures of both and it's been very reliable in keeping my hands dry (I'm overly sweaty ;[ ), chalked up for longer periods, and the friction is totally rad with the White Gold!!
I'm going to try using some more of this by itself when I need to refill again.
What else can I say? Chalk is chalk. This one happens to work great! I like its small-chunked, ground-up consistency because I don't have to spend time breaking up big chunks and it dries out my hands without giving them that squeaky/slippery feeling that can happen with fine powder chalks. I don't use much chalk at the gym but I use it often climbing outdoors, and this one's my favorite. I've tried big, cheap chalk blocks and Metolius chalk and my personal preference is for the BD White Gold.
By the way, the 56g size comes as a solid block whereas the 100g, 200g and 300g sizes come loosely ground in a bag or little plastic tub. It's confusing the way BC presents it above in the picture so I thought it'd be helpful to clarify.
i really like the white gold chalk by black diamond it works great and takes the moisture away instantly and gives excellent grip i have used it exclusively and love it. i will definitely buy more.
This stuff dries out your hands better than anything else I've used. Metolius super chalk, which I used to really like, almost feels gritty after using this superfine magical white powder. It's not sticky at all, just...dry. Perfect!
love the stuff, sticks like glue.
This chalk is awesome. It keeps my hands dry. Doesn't over coat them. It just works. It comes in a bag powder/nuggets, instead of the block shown in the picture, which makes it easy to just dump into my chalk bag.
