Hello everyone,

I felt my ropes and other mountaineering equipment needed some color. Instead of the Tan/Black or Black/Blue ropes on the HT PMS, you can pretty much color them in any color you wish and with ease, but can be a bit messy. You can dye it or do what I did, just get yourself a colored marker (oil base may be better but water base markers are fine also) and just start coloring the fabric. You may have to push the marker into the rope and fabric inorder to get into the seams deeper. Here, take a look:

It's quite easy and you don't need to buy a dye pack and get your sink all mucky.
