I dont see where I can actually read the paper. But from what is said in the abstract, I am going to call bullshit on this one. Although it is true chalk reduces friction, it is completely bullshit that water does not. Duck your hands in a bucket of water and then climb some hard route with lots of shitty holds. See how you do. If you want more proof that water acts as a lubricant, the next time it is raining out while you are driving, slam on your brakes and see how long it takes to stop, and compare the results to dry conditions.
