Pinned raft on lower Eagle

A friend of mine flipped and pinned his raft on the big rock across from Costco. Everyone is ok, now just have a chore getting it out. Called Eagle dispatch.

Yes, we learned a lot. Spencerhenry, thanks for your kind words and intent. It's people like you that make mountainbuzz a warm and welcoming forum to share information that might impact others. Also, it's so nice you feel you know the whole situation well enough to offer feedback and wisdom.

screw up, let people know what's up and that the authorities have been contacted so no false searches are started, and some internet trollholio pisses all over you.

Yeah, I was thinking that maybe they called dispatch to say everyone was OK, and a little while later a bunch of bored rescue guys roll up and shove them out of the way and take over the boat recovery because they're the "experts." Like what I think has happened with kayak recoveries on Clear Creek.

It's amazing what we can come up with when we don't know any details, eh? We can fill that info in to fit however we want to imagine the story to work out in the end.

dsruss - glad everyone's OK, hopefully all the gear's recovered and in good shape too.

Stay safe,

-AH
