Better Way to Mark Your Climbing Gear

by Tom Markiewicz on November 14, 2008

The GearFlogger reviews an insanely useful accessory for climbing gear. The Mark epoxy from Boulder Based Designs is

like a condom for your gear: a prophylactic to prevent that expensive piece from walking away, accidentally or otherwise. Just mix the two ingredients and have about a 30 minute working time to apply to gear. 24 hours later it’s bombproof. literally: there may be some chemical to get it off but there’s no way mechanical friction or impact will do it.

Looks much better than the colored electrical tape I’ve been using for years that keeps falling off.

The Mark comes in four colors, has enough for making 250 marks, and retails for $14.95.

    Hey Tom. Sounds great… can it be used on webbing as well, or just metal?

  • http://www.allclimbing.com Tom Markiewicz

    Amy, my understanding is that it is only for metal gear. I’m not sure of the impact, but using an epoxy on webbing or cord may have negative effects.

  • amyc

    Thanks. I figured that was the case, but you never know… stranger things have happened. :)

    For webbing and slings, I usually just make sure I’m using different brands than my partners. With so much variety out there, it usually isn’t too much an issue.
