Crow Hill Climbing & Potluck BBQ (Saturday May 13, rain date Sunday May 14)

To celebrate the conclusion of the Rock Climbing Program, we have traditionally held a casual day of climbing and socializing with a potluck BBQ at Crow Hill. 

Crow Hill is in the Leominster State Forest in Leominster, MA, about 1 hour west of Boston, and features many single-pitch trad climbs and toproping.
