    Zion Pine Creek July 13 - Lost Rope

    I stuck a rope on the first rap in Pine Creek on Saturday. The end came down on the debris in-between stages and buried itself into the rocks and got stuck. A party behind us tried to free the end right there AT the stuck part and were unable to free it. I came the next day noonish to rap in and get it, but it was gone.

    The rope is a 135' 8mm rope, tan w black tracers, in a very beat up Imlay rope bag with a carabiner. Please PM me if you know its whereabouts.

    Thanks. Tom

    Perhaps you should try more beginner friendly canyons before stepping up to Pine Creek.






    On a more serious note -- how the heck did you escape the canyon without your rope? Isn't the second rappel the Golden Cathedral?

    Pine Creek, Zion -

    Last rappel is about 90 feet. Longest rappel otherwise is about 55 feet.

    Party of 6. We had three ropes in the 100 to 150 foot range.

    I also had a FiddleStick and a 200' micro pull cord.

    I know this canyon is a long way from the road, so it is AMAZING that we carried SO MUCH rope into this ultra-backcountry canyon. (/sarcasm)

    YOU have remarkable powers, to start in Zion, and end up in Neon Canyon / Escalante. I did not see the wormhole that went there, but...

    On Bogley, yes.

    Elsewhere, probably not.
