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.

Triple Overhangs (aka Sun Gypsy) 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  MA : Leominster Area : ... : Green Corner
Sun Gypsy gets two stars for the interesting and varied moves through each of the three overhangs. The best part of the climb is the top, while the bottom is marked by a number of large ledges between short faces. Climb the left side of the block to a large ledge beneath the first overhang. A medium-sized cam protects the moves up to the second large ledge beneath overhang number two. Work your feet up the left wall and use a couple of good holds on the right side to pull over.

Beta photo is in error. Sun Gypsy goes through overhang just to left of big dead tree.
