PSA: Don't leave your rope in the river.

Seemed like there was a lot of ropes left in the river last year. Possibly because it was a higher water year. Don't leave your rope in the river. If you do, let someone know.

Thanks. Beater on.

Also be heads up for people who set up boobie traps over the winter designed to kill you. Already had to cut out a rope strung across the river on Clear Creek that was trying to kill me. Last year I got clocked by a cable strung across Boulder Creek. Basically, people, please stop letting me be the first person down the run for the year.

Yup, serious business. One of my paddling buddies from years past lost a friend to an anchor rope on a relatively easy river. Ropes are like guns, in the wrong hands they kill, and the correct hands they save.

All to often ropes are thrown unnecessarly. Why i remember back when Mountain whitewater descents use to throw a veritable spider web of rope bags at the first sign of a swimmer. Choke up the whole river they would, yes sir the whole river.

But in all seriousness ropes can be a very useful tool, but they can also be one of the most dangerous things out there. Choose your throws wisley.
