log in Mr. Bill

not like anybody's running it now, but I took a look at Clear Creek on the way home today and it looks like there is a big log stuck in Mr. Bill in the Narrows. It's right in the hole and pinned on the rock that is just behind the hole. It is bouncing a little bit, so might come out with more water, but if not, it could be an issue for somebody that really stuffs the hole.

We might be able to grab it sometime this week, but if anyone else is there and wants to pull it out, have at it. It doesn't need a saw, but rather some good roping and a few people to pull on it.

Joel

that log would have been a serious unseen death trap for a swimmer with a little more water. glad its gone. i'll also note that it only took 2 rafters 5 min to pull that thing out. beer in one hand rope in the other. pathetic joe. pathetic. i also think we moved logs on river right at blackie. still a bunch of wood on the left that we well...left.

nice work guys - but how'd you do it? Joe and I had Z drags from all different directions going on and the damn thing would move all over, but not out of the river. did it look like that thing had been in there for a while? As Joe put it, "man we've been boofing over that thing for years."

we didn't have beers in one hand - that must have been the problem.

Beers are the secret....and to answer the beer question on a cold day you need a real beer to help with the calories to stay warm I personally prefer a lager for cold weather log removal. no god damn high life you would just go hypothermic...

Actually what we did was tie in with a 200' piece of static line and go directly uphill to the guardrail, just down stream of that big f--inn rock on the hillside. Their we tied a sling and attached a pulley, a couple pulls and it was free.

Not sure how long that log has been in Mr Bill but it has been in the river a long time. It was heavy as shit to pull it out and get it up the bank.
