Description 

The far right end of Crow Hill is known as the Practice Face, because of its classic easier lines and easy TR/rappel anchors. Bring a couple 20-foot slings or some rope to build your TR anchor, or wait your turn and lead one of the easier lines on the cliff.

Getting There 

Follow the trail along the cliff bottom to the right side. The practice face is characterized by the elevated belay area and the lowest-angle rock on the cliff. Descent is by the trail (walk north, then down the hill) or by rappel (three sets of anchors, about 10 feet back from the cliff edge).

The left-most route on the practice face, Ladybug starts by crawling up toward a bulge with a lone bolt. Past the bolt, bold climbers find success by manteling on slopers, then stepping up a few more feet to some thank-god protection. Above this, the climbing is more casual and less memorable....[more]   Browse More Classics in Massachusetts

Would it be reasonable to expect to find this wall dry tomorrow with all the melting we've been having?

This wall was basically a waterfall last week.... Though this route is usually the first to dry....
