Barrel Springs Hazard

As of 4pm on June 8, 2011 there is a rope a few inches above the water line stretching from one bank to another right above the entrance to Barrel Springs in Glenwood Canyon. I saw it from the highway so I couldn't remove it.
Also, it appears that the bike path has collapsed into the rapid so who knows where that concrete and rebar has ended up, but the current is pushing in that direction.

BTW: If anyone is running Barrel at this level, I would love to see some video!

Is it the same rope that has been there for years that some climbers put in? just wondering, if it is it should go away, it cant be safe to cross anymore. I am steering clear of that for a while, its f'ing huge!
