A. Baldwin on Hysteria


This is a unique climb for the New. Very much feels like it belongs in the Gunks. Begin at the right end of a roof and follow the face to the top passing many horizontals. The beginning wanders a bit. The hardest part is the first 20 Ft or so, from this point the feature get very unique and are really positive. This might not be a great lead for someone breaking into the 5.8 grade, but it's not a hard 5.8 either.


Continue upstream from Orchard wall proper. You will see the Shiny Faces offwidth/roof just before you reach Hysteria.


This takes all kinds of gear. Tri-cams are helpful for the many horizontals, but small cams work well too. Bolted anchor.
