I think Epic is the right word for that extraction. Just out of curiosity, did you get your boat back?

Thanks for the story and knowledge, I'm sure it will make a difference for someone when they find themselves in similar circumstances.

Yea, everything was recovered, couldn't leave the boat in there like that, got to think about the next crew? And I wanted my boat back!

I didn't mean to imply you would leave it there, just wondered if it managed to unpin itself between your extraction and trying to recover the gear. Sounds like you were losing light towards the end of your extraction, so I imagine it was the next day.

Sorry....don't mean to be taking away from the epicness with talk of gear extraction...though sometimes that is nearly as good a story as getting yourself out unharmed.

Sounds like the trip was great, both before and after the extraction incident.

The drops above the the 22 teacups put in have been run for at least 20 years. Albeit without a lot of groups doing it.
People would mistakenly put in there instead of the 22 because the access to the river is much easier.
