Description 

Leominster and the surrounding towns have climbing areas other than Crow Hill. On weekends and days where Crow Hill is overcrowded, climbing can still be had at these areas, which can be tricky to find. Some have longer approaches than Crow Hill Ledge, and none of them offer the route quality, but there are some fun climbs hidden out there.


Getting There 

Directions for each area will be included in each area page.

Jane. This only shows the bottom half through the crux to the sling (the sling is located at the top of the crux). The rest of the climb is obvious.

Jane 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c PG13  MA : Leominster Area : ... : Fisherman's Wall
Jane is the obvious finger crack on the right side of the Fisherman's Wall (the tallest, and largest wall). This is one of my very favorites. Most jams are secure depending on your hand size and ability level. The crux is the obvious bulge with chockstone in the crack. Directly above the bulge/crux is a sling anchor, which most people lower from. The climb does continue to the top; however, this is not the common practice. When Jane was first freed, it is was one of the hardest pitches...[more]   Browse More Classics in MA
