Is that duck tape on your rope mid point? Not a bad idea I guess. Does it run through the belay device well enough? Sep 11, 2015

Yep! (Rico's rope). It was surprisingly flexible/unnoticable as it went through the belay device. Not a bad idea if you're at the car and don't have a rope-marking pen - beats having no middle marker, especially on an 80m rope! (And to ward off the "but duct tape is toxic, eats away at the rope" comments, just think of it this way: if the glue in duct tape were toxic enough to eat away at the rope over its typical lifespan, I think I'd be seriously questioning the durabilty of the rope against unavoidable elements such as sun exposure, dirt, and body oils....)
