Description 

Home to the best 5.8 route in Peterskill - as well as two sets of anchor bolts - this wall is frequently occupied. This wall also boasts the ONLY set of anchor bolts capable of rappeling from; in fact, it's a favorite spot for guides to teach their clients how to rappel.

Getting There 

Leave upper parking lot from far end, walk through meadow and past stream, come to large clearing. See footpath straight ahead; follow path until it enters the woods, then angle off to the right - you're heading towards an alcove (giant dihedral) with a crevice at its apex and a large crack in the right wall. Psycho Wall is the right wall of this alcove.

Possibly the best 5.8 in Peterskill; it has a little of everything - arete climbing, face climbing, off-width crack, and slightly-overhanging jug-bashing. It's also the only route in Peterskill to have bolts off which you can rappel....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
