Why didn't you just undo the caliper and wrap it around the handlebars? You still would of had the other brake.
The caliper would have been just as effective wrapped around the handlebar as it was sitting impotently over the rotor, but that wouldn't have solved the problem.
Riding steep singletrack without a working front brake is not a fun way to spend a day. That's how I rode the 8km I did ride. It was crap.
