The Booze Pig Wall.
The Booze Pig Wall is a collage of legend and history, of myth and mystery... The wall itself looks like a cresting wave captured in stone, and time. A wave that will quickly feel like it is crashing down on you if your tips are not up for the challenges of such classic Drysdale problems as Booze Pig V6, On liquor I Spent My Last Dime V5, and Bottle is a Bible V7. This is "Ridge" bouldering distilled down to the purest movement possible, and these technical lines will certainly test the skills of most. though not truly high ball, finishing these bad boys up will require a calm head, and a little foot faith at the top. A beautiful place to stretch it out, and take it all in.
Just a ways past the Lake Mary Store, and just before you get to Lower Lake Mary proper, there is a dirt road on the left (north) side of the highway. You can park down low before the gate, or drive up to the visible "T" junction just above and through the gate. Please park in the pull outs at the "T", and not at the well proper. And Please park as far off the road as possible, so other vehicles can access the area.
Hike up the road to the east to the well, and pass this on the right. Find faint climbers trail that will take you up hill, below a low cliff band, and then east for a ways. Jump up hill a little more, keep moving east, and eventually you will find a large cave. The far right side of this wall is the Booze Pig Wall.

Booze Pig is a classic crimp line which will test your strength, and certainly the clarity of your head. Start with right hand two finger undercling pocket. This hold is not your typical pocket, and is a bit sharp. Move up and left to the slopey crimp rail. Match and then deadpoint the slopey toothy crimp. One more big move to a finger bucket up and left delivers you into the insecure topout... Twenty years old and still kicking ass....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ

I will attempt to locate the Long Ryders wall. When standing below the Booze Pig, simply contour to the right. Long Ryders will be the first prominent wall you come to. Or, park at the first paved pullout on lake Mary road, after passing the store. Simply walk straight uphill tending left on elk trails. Long Ryders is taller than Booze Pig, with characteristic white overhang to steep headwall. The rock is pinkish white. This is definitely OTD bouldering. There are several problems on this wall. The only name i remember is Harriet Tubman is Gonna Carry Me Home V6. There is also a stout V1 on the middle left. Good luck
