Rope in Waterton

Lost an unbagged rope today in "avalanche" rapid in waterton canyon. Saw it go through the rapid and am 99.5% its in the lake. Keep an eye out and sorry for the trouble.

loose rope

The unbagged rope will most likely be tangled near where you lost it. Potentially causing a strainer to swimmers.

I hope you meant bagged rope.

Thanks for posting the warning.

Go back and find it, then remove the hazard you have created. Then learn how to handle/secure a rope properly....yes, it is a big deal.

We had 5 sets of eyes on it when it happened and looking for it immediately after, as well as later on. Had it been findable we'd have found it.

I can't imagine 50-70' of rope not being visible somewhere? Especially in waterton! Was it completely unwound or knotted up? Not being a dick at all… that's crazy though!

River rope floats. If it was in the lake you would have seen it.

Sounds like you boys need some fishing poles and some huge treble hooks.
Thanks for the heads up.
