Boars Hair Is Better

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Plastic brushes leave a residue on climbing holds that feels like snot and looks like cement. Please just use these brushes, they're right around the same price and get the hold feeling way nicer anyway. Take it easy with pressure on softer rock especially and just use more brush strokes if needed. And thanks for saving the rocks!!

Great for your teeth too!

Not actually though. This is a great climbing brush though; lightweight, and easy to fit into a chalk bag, and the boar's hair bristle's will clean up that over-chalked, greasy sloper in no time at all. If you're climbing hard, you need one of these!

Great little brush

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The handle is very comfortable, the boar's hair wont damage the rock or plastic holds, and the size is great for attaching to a chalk bag.

All Natural

Love this brush. It's super effective because the bristles get in every nook and cranny of the hold. Great for plastic and rock and since it's boar hair the bristles don't rub off into the hold like plastic bristles do.

Awesome boars hair brush. Wish i could tell you how long they really last as most of mine either get lost or stolen.

Best Brush!

These are the best hold brushes on the market in my personal opinion. They last surprisingly long for a boar's hair brush, and are really gentle on more fragile rock types such as sandstone, which makes me happy. I have one for every chalk bag. They also make gifts for your climbing friends!
