Here's how I recognize it:
When I see a long stone wall (~50' long and 6-10' high) directly on the left and the river bends hard to the left after that, I know it's coming just around the corner. I know there's a lot of stonework along this river, but this is one of the bigger sections of it and it's below Trashcan, whereas most of the old railroad stonework is above SuperMax or adjacent with Trashcan.
If someone wants to do the run 1st time w/ no guide at high water, I'd wager that they can probably handle it. The hump creating the hole is visible from above and your instincts tell you to boof. Boofing left is just the safest bet, but center works, too, and it doesn't really line you up for going right anyway.
