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.

The crack leads to a ledge, where a chain around a thread can be backed up for an anchor.
