Rockclimbing Desolation Canyon

Hi Folks!
First post.
I'm a rockclimber whos been introduce to the awesome world of river running, in the past couple of years. It seems River Rats and Dirtbag climbers share at least a part of a soul!
Combining river running and climbing seems to be a natural progression. We've done several first ascents now and I thought some of you would be interested in seeing this:
Mountain Project: Climbing Desolation Canyon > The Siren

We had a great trip down Deso in April. The Green was running 13,000CFS and made for a very memorable float, for my first time rowing a boat through rapids.

Thanks for sharing! Sounds like you got to experience something few ever have and, probably, I won't. I'm not familiar with the petroglyphs there. Please post photos here (my internet took a shit, sorry if they are in your link). Deso is truly a place to enjoy, glad to hear you did!
