The Edelrid Boulder Brush can get to almost any tough spots on a hold thanks to the double headed design and the extra stiff bristles are great for removing chalk residue from the smallest of pores.

Edelrid Company milestones from the Edelrid website:
1863 Julius EDELmann and Carl RIDder found EDELRID. Julius Edelmann was a salesman and mountaineer, Carl Ridder a technician, who specialised in braiding machines. The company starts manufacturing braids and cords.
1880 EDELRID presents its first braided fishing lines in Berlin.
Until 1941 Three different types of construction are in use: hawser-laid ropes – mainly made of Italian hemp, spiral braided Lützner ropes and spiral-braided ropes made of pure silk. The first nylon ropes are then developed in the United States and France.
1953 The kernmantel rope is invented. EDELRID introduces the first kernmantel rope and revolutionises fall prevention when climbing. Hemp climbing ropes and rope breakage soon become a thing of the past.
1964 EDELRID develops the dynamic rope, the first rope capable of withstanding multiple falls. It becomes the forerunner of the modern dynamic climbing rope.
1965 EDELRID launches the first climbing harness onto the market – a chest harness – and then develops the first seat harness parallel to the competition. This paves the way for the revolution in climbing standards in the 1970s. Climbing grades soar as a result.
1973 Quickdraws: EDELRID continues to blaze trails. Claus Benk, the owner of EDELRID at the time, launches the first stitched quickdraw.
1977 EDELRID's twin rope technique is accepted and adopted as standard climbing practise.
1994 Always ready to innovate, EDELRID recognises the arrival of canyoning as an adventure sport and pioneers the floating rope.
1996 EDELRID introduces a rope designed specifically to cope with the demands of indoor climbing walls.
2000 The EDELRID development team remain ahead of the field with the 9.8 mm Dynalon rope – the thinnest diameter single rope available at this point.
2006 EDELRID becomes part of the VAUDE group.
2007 EDELRID launches the Madillo – the first ever folding climbing helmet
2009 EDELRID is the first rope manufacturer in the world to ensure that all its ropes fulfil the stringent bluesign® environmental standard. The whole manufacturing process is certified, from material selection, to production and sales.
2010 For high ropes courses EDELRID releases the Smart Belay, an intelligent self-protection system with interactive carabiners for increased safety when self-belaying.
