No worries. . . accidents will happen. With runs like Gore, Bailey and Blackrock being run fairly regularly it is always a good idea to post when a deployed rope is lost in a rapid. Eventhough I didn't see the post, Deepstroke verified that you did post about the rope. Good job, that is all you can really do. I heard about a guy getting killed in Gore from a deployed rope so I always keep my eyes open for safety hazaards. fortunately the bag was bobbing with the surging current right below the house sized boulder on river left. The rope was intact but fully deployed.
On another note, are you related to Dr. Tim and Sarah Judkins from the VA Hospital?

Searched the rapid and run out for a long time and could not locate it. Will continue search next time (Friday).
I was the one who dropped the wrong end, huge foul, 10,000 apologies.
Good chance to re-emphasize how important it is not to do stupid $h!t like this...ropes in rivers=very bad. Sorry again. D.
