The fisherman was found near pretty much right at Rancho over a week later if I remember right.
My friend did CPR on the "older lady" at Radium the day after he took his first CPR class. It really shook him up. It's nothing to dismiss. There is an obstacle in there and if somebody asks for information about it, they should be furnished with reliable beta, not derided for being a wimp.
I know there are a lot of young hot shots on this website -- I used to be one myself -- but river hazards need to be explained and understood, whether it's Kirshbaum's, Needle's Eye, Black Rocks (Ruby Canyon) or Niagara mother-effin' Falls. All four places have killed people and all have varying degrees of difficulty.
That is all.
