Description 

Green Corner is home to a handful of good, moderate routes, as well as a number of more difficult and less traveled (and often dirty) lines. All of the climbs share a common start to the right of the remnants of an old tree trunk and on the left side of a large block. Most of the routes tend to climb short faces with large ledges in between. Green Corner is generally dryer than other faces on Crow Hill.

Getting There 

The Green Corner is one of the first areas encountered along the path leading from the gravel parking lot to the base of Crow Hill. It is just to the right of the broken ledges near the cave, and just left of Fisherman’s Wall. Look for the old tree trunk flanked by a pair of corners. If approaching from the paved parking lot, follow the base of the cliff past the End Crags, over the blocky ground near the cave, and then down to Green Corner. Due to the amount of traffic this area sees, the best descent for any of the routes is to walk off left and follow the trail around the End Crags. You can also sling trees at the top and rappel with a single rope.

Green Gremlin 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  MA : Leominster Area : ... : Green Corner
Green Gremlin looks better from the ground than it actually is. Climb the left side of the block to the first ledge. Instead of heading left for Triple Overhangs, walk right and climb the corner with a pair of small trees growing out of it. The crux is probably avoiding the trees along the route – the lower one is especially awkward to get around. Continue up easier rock past two more small trees to the top of the wall. To descend, sling the trees at the top of the cliff and rap with a sing...[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
