New Class III on Desolation

Just got off the phone with my buds at the BLM Price, firming up my Sept launch on Desolation.

They told me that a big time flash flood about 8-10 days ago rolled car-sized boulders into Joe Hutch Creek rapid and that it's now a Class III. Hoping to get more info.

Anyone actually seen this?

(I know, this is nothing compared the GC situation, but Deso used to be a walk in the park.)

Check out Utah Rafters forum- It said there that it was Cow Swim rapid that was altered, not Joe Hutch Creek, but with a scout from the right for new rocks it should not be any bigger deal than Three Fords.
