@HowNOT2 Are Sharpies on Climbing Ropes Safe? Break Tests with Sharpie Permanent Markers vs Beal Rope Markers


"I think... is the answer. After two break tests and surviving after doing it for 15 years, I think sharpie permanent markers are safe-ish. HOWEVER, after hanging out with Brent Roth who is helping us launch our HowNOT2 Canyon series, I'm a believer in the Beal rope marker found at He gives a firehose of useful information in rope care and marking your ropes. This is one of our best episodes!" - @HowNOT2
