what to mark with on dark wood

Can anyone suggest what to mark very dark (and a little wet) wood with for cut marks? I need to lay out some stringers on pressure treated fir. The 2x12s are very dark to begin with and they are a little wet too, so they become even darker.

Any ideas appreciated!

Thanks

Cool

Any finely sharp-pointed object will work (awl, ice pick, compass, etc.).
Good Luck!

I guess I was thinking of a marker, but that sounds good. I'll try that!
