Oliver Richman on the crux move of "Dr. Jones...

Description 

Start matched on the far right small crimp rail. Work left past some sharp holds with bad feet and high tension heel hooks. Use the arete all the way on the left to top out.

Location 

One of the last boulders you come across. The problem faces the river and sits atop another boulder. Just upstream from "The Art of Zen", and just downstream from the triangle shaped slab boulder.

Protection 

Pads (maybe have someone there to watch that they don't slide into the river).

Used to be a solid V9 project. On the actual FA, after having done every move multiple times, I pulled the V9 crux, but then later stepped on the really bad crimp while topping out, and it broke. It revealed a much better hold, making the problem an estimated V8, though I haven't done it since the hold broke.
