Description 

The End Crags is a small climbing area on the far left side of Crow Hill. The wall is just over 30 feet tall, and contains a number of short, moderate leads and one 5.10 top rope. The area is popular with beginners, and the cracks and corners stay wet for quite a while during the spring and after a rain. There is a large gully to the left of the wall where the Midstate Trail goes to the top of the cliffs (and makes for a convenient descent trail from the top of the climbs).


Getting There 

To reach the End Crags from the gravel climber's parking lot, follow the trail to the point where it intersects the wall at the Green Corner and turn left. Scramble up past the cave and down to the End Crags. If approaching from the lower parking lot on the Midstate Trail, the End Crags will be the first wall that you see.

Layback and Tom's Dilemma.

Tomís Dilemma 5.5 4b 13 IV+ MS 4a  MA : Leominster Area : ... : End Crags
Dilemma is located in the center of the crag, about five feet right of a pronounced corner (Layback, 5.6). Climb the crack to a point where it widens slightly about half way up and just below a short, left-facing corner. The crux is passing this wider section and gaining the dihedral above. Look for some great holds on the face to the left. Climb the dihedral to the top and anchor using the trees. Walk off left and follow the gully back to the base of the wall.
