Gear Labelling

When out climbing it's pretty easy to end up with loads of each other's gear by the end of the day. The easiest way of identifying which items of gear are yours is to mark your own with strips of coloured tape (e.g. electrical insulation tape). This page shows the colouring codes people are using, so that if you find some gear you can return it to its owner. If you choose to mark your gear, please try to make your colour code different from everybody elses to avoid confusion. If necessary you can re-use some of the colouring codes used by former members (i.e. in the second table) but it's best to make up a new one if you can.

If you have a colour code to add / update please let the webmaster know!
