Tarzan - Rock Climbing

Tarzan - Crow Hill
A strenuous but fun climb. I've been wanting to climb Tarzan ever since first I saw it when I started climbing at Crow Hill for 6 years ago. Most of, if not all, the climbs are very intimidating for short person like me. But today I got to finally give Tarzan and try and loved it! I didn't get to finish it, but so happy I got on it and am really looking forward to trying it again. Thanks to Udai for the beta and belay!





I was glad I could fit my entire left side into this bit of off-width crack. It's such a fantastic rest spot for me.





Our Gary group including Dan, Scott, Andrew, Dan, Zheng and Jane met up at Crow Hill. Here's Dan (left) on Tarzan and Dan (right) on Buttress.












It was Andrew's first time outdoor climbing and he crushed it! Here he is on Intertwine.

Great day for some mellow climbing! Never been to the End Crags of Crow Hill in Leominster State Forest. So Nuno, Nancy, David and I headed there for a day of top roping.

Crow Hill - Rock Climb

Joined the AMC Worcester group for some climbing in the Leominster State Forest. It had rained the day before and most routes on the Practice and Main walls were wet. But still a bit more climbing could be done on the other walls. I got a chance to try out Cro-Magnon - no pressure - just wanted to be able to do the first two bouldering moves, and that was as far as I got! LOL! In the end, John Grote showed me how it's done......















Crow Hills - Rock Climbing

Some rock climbing photos I took while out climbing with the Rock & Ice Climbing meetup group! Besides climbing a couple of routes on the Practice Face, I also got to rappel one of the routes! Crow Hills is located in the Leominster State Forest, MA. Photos taken on the Main Face (80ft) and the Practice Face (70ft).
