It's tough keeping an indoor climbing gym clean during COVID. However, business owners in Colorado say they hope a new discovery will have people climbing the walls again without worries.

It’s a liquid chalk created by Friction Labs. Researchers discovered it kills coronavirus.

That's because the liquid chalk is 80% ethanol.

Researchers say after five minutes on your hands, it worked as well, if not better than FDA approved hand sanitizer.

The liquid chalk is available in more than 200 climbing gyms and CrossFit centers across the country
