So I know Noah's pulled it out today... but does anyone have any info on the rope that was stuck at Pinnacle rock at the end of this rapid. Who's was it? How did it get there? Why was it left? How did Noah's get it out (rumors of a mechanical advantage)?
My curiosity is peaked.

Mechanical advantage? Throw rope? Noah's Ark? My curiosity is also peaked. Alan, why do the photo boaters not have any documentation of this?

I assume there were more trips coming down and so upstream is where the photographers attention was. But obviously, Noahs isn't talking...

Throw rope

There was a throw rope that we pulled out on a Noah's training trip on the afternoon of the 4th. It was left/downstream of pinnacle and below the sight of the photographers. The bag was chalked in between some rocks on the river bed. The strange thing was that the other end of the rope was pulled upstream to the shore and was out of the water. We pulled the bag out with a 4:1 and the bag was unmarked. The photographers said they had no idea it was there, or where it possibly came from.

I had mentioned the rope at the Upper Ark Head Guide meeting and none of the commercial outfitters new of any missing ropes.

Thankfully no one had swam into the rope before it was removed.

Steve, you're probably more religious than me. I don't think my skin is that thin. I know some good, hard working people that worked for Noah's. It was just a rude comment that wasn't very funny in my opinion. Amen.

Yeah I'll agree too... It was funny. Of course safety is always the first priority. Praise baby jesus we're all safe!

I like to picture Jesus in a tuxedo T-Shirt because it says I want to be formal, but I'm here to party.

I think nearly every humorous comment is funny in its own way. It helps to be able to get in touch with your inner teenager.

The prayer comment is always funny.

I am still laughing from, 'Save me jeabus.'

Jesus in a tuxedo T-Shirt. Awesome image.

Thanks for the chuckles.

The thought that God could care less about a rope on Zoom flume is really hilarious. I just pulled a Tebo on that one.

And speaking of god, don't you think she enjoys watching the carnage as much as anyone? It seams to me that ones' intention on the water is the highest form of worship.

So humor aside (& them were some good jokes!) (oh, & blond & female raft guide jokes are my favorites, it's good to be able to laugh at ones self!) Anyways, my thought is that the rope might have been from private boaters the evening before (after photographers left,) hence the unmarked bag, & no photographer info, & lack of professionalism in leaving a rope. Oh, & I pray to the River all the time! (just in my own unique hippy dippy way.) ;)
