Rope in lower Clear Creek

I let go of a rope as i was being pulled in by a swimmer in Rigo. I'll go back and look tomorrow. Before any ass hat decides to armchair quarterback this one, it was the second deployment after previously recovering a swimmer and repacking. I thought I missed this swimmer and was starting to pull in the line when he caught the bag on the end. Next time I'll know to wait until doubly sure I missed.

50 foot yellow line in a green nrs bag.

Hojo, This kind of negligence can't stand. We need you out there tonight and to have that rope by the time the first dawn patrol comes down the canyon.

Seriously, though, thanks for letting folks know.

Good luck finding it,

-AH

I am not afraid to don some scuba gear if necessary

I will confirm it's not there now. I removed it at 6:30 and thought I posted as such shortly there after but it seems the post never made it.
