3. Fisherman's Wall
> Leominster Area
> Crow Hill
If the moderates of Crow Hill are what attract you to this fine MA crag, then this wall is probably not for you. With the easiest line being 5.8+ and the hardest going at 5.13, this wall reaches approximately 80 feet in height, is slightly overhanging and is stunning.
The left portion on the wall is split by a ledge which makes up the traverse of Green Corner. Most of the climbs on this part are stiff 5.9ish on large slopers. If you decide to do the second pitch or just do one long pitch, the upper half is much harder with fewer and smaller holds. There is also the easy exit finishing up Green Corner's second pitch.
The climbs on the right are the attention getters (visually at least) being either beautiful cracks or improbable moves up through slopey horizontals. This is the tallest unbroken part of the wall with a nice brownish color. Some lines have been led with small gear and big moves producing test pieces going at 5.13 R/X (more info on this soon).
Don't miss the classics like Diagonal (5.8+), Cro-Magnon (5.10), and Jane (5.11) though the rest of the climbs are great as well. Most of the climbs on the wall can be lead or TR'd with long slings and a 60m rope.
More info to come about the history of the wall....
Situated to the climber's right of the green corner and left of Tarzan's corner and the buttress. Hard to miss due to its height and visible difficulty.
