Description 

A Flagstaff classic, especially for the grade. Booze Pig is a devious line which will test your finger strength, body tension, and clarity of mind.

Start with right hand two finger "tooth" looking undercling pocket. This hold is not your typical pocket, and is a bit sharp. Move up and left with good feet to the conspicuous slopey crimp rail (The Lighting Bolt hold of Flagstaff) on the bulge. Do a tenuous match, and then deadpoint the slopey -toothy -crimp hold up and right, once described as "crimping a pineapple". One more big move to a heavenly finger bucket up and left delivers you into the insecure, punch drunk feeling topout... Twenty+ years old and still kicking ass.

Location 

Center of the Booze Pig wall, left of OLISMLD, behind scraggly juniper.
