J. Long Ryders Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Long Ryders Wall Topo
The Long Ryders Wall is a bulging crown of limestone, perforated with big deep pockets, clean crimps, joyous finger buckets and more. Expect unique lines with plenty of deadpointing, dynoing, and gut sucking tension moves. This is certainly one of Rob's better walls out here.
This is a sunny wall, and you will want cool temps to enjoy it. 25-40 degrees and sunny is perfect, though a little warmer and cloudy might be easier on the eyes.
Hike east past the Booze Pig and Half-life Walls. It is unmistakable when you finally lock eyes on it.
Weather station 4.8 miles from here

This line is awesome! In the middle of the wall, at middle height is a gorgeous jug rail. Below this are a couple of excellent pockets. Start below and right with a good right hand side pull. Move up to the pockets, and your off! Enjoy the ride through the mean streets of Laredo. Classic. Originally rated V1? Let me know what you think....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ

many of the routes on this wall were named; stich in time, long riders, pinch overhang,
long live the spirit of Robert Drysdale.

I am always up for a history lesson, and making things right, rest assured. Even if it all comes down to fuzzy recollections in the end.
Personally, I find this whole band of limestone intriguing, stunning, and sometimes mind boggling. And, I have for the last thirteen years or so...
It certainly presents a myriad of challenges.
Really, I am just trying to entice people to check it out, because if they do, there is a 50/50 chance that they will love it. And the way I feel about it, I think Rob would love to see the sports action, in a place that he left so much of his energy and promise!
I have had visions of a "Drysdale Trail" that would link this whole band as one, and really unearth the wealth of climbing that (in my minds eye), I know Rob was thinking about...... Kindred spirits. JJ
