deso/ grey Joe hutch canyon rapid

Just got off deso at 2900. Joe hutch has changed and is now one of the larger and difficult rapids on the run.2 big holes @ the top R. and one on the left with a large lateral below, flow then splits around a rock shoal. Penalty for failure here is high. This will get some ugly hydraulics at higher flows and likely metamorphise into something else- but I don't see it getting easier until some really big flow comes through. Well worth a scout.
