Dan Morales walks on a set of ropes in the hot room in the basement of King Ropes on Tuesday. The hot room maintains a temperature of 130 degrees Fahrenheit to allow the ropes to stretch and flatten. In the summer time, longer ropes are taken to a field outside Sheridan to stretch under the sun. Morales has been with the King Ropes for 34 years.
