Great. One of the few deaths on Gore was due to a rope in Kirshbaum's. Please let us know if it turns up. Will be extra cautious running Kirshbaum's until then.

it is a 50' vest rope i believe that got thrown into my friends boat and when he swam out of toilet bowl it came out as well, we looked for it but did not see it anywhere, my guess is that as the water drops a little it will show up and we will b able to get it. my appologies everyone.

I was told yesterday about another lost throwbag above Kirshbaums from the same hole this weekend. Another reminder to watch out for ropes. It's important to keep your throwbags from getting away. They cause deadly underwater hazards. Please stop keeping lose bags in your boat or pfd.

When we came through TB late Sunday afternoon there was a rope caught under a boulder right where the pool below TB ends. The bag itself was sitting on top of the boulder w/ the rope leading down underwater to where it was snagged. We couldn't budge it.
Heads up.
