Routes in J. Long Ryders Wall

Description

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.

Getting There

Hike east past the Booze Pig and Half-life Walls. It is unmistakable when you finally lock eyes on it.

Hey guys,

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
