Crow Hill Climbing & Potluck BBQ (Sat May 13, rain date Sun 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.

Post-program Events

These events are not part of the rock program, but we encourage graduates of the program to attend.  Mark your calendars!

New Seconds Weekend (May 20-21)

An amazing weekend of multi-pitch trad climbing at the Shawangunks (a.k.a. "The Gunks") in the Mohonk Preserve, near New Paltz, NY, open by invitation to graduates of the Rock Program.  The Gunks are a major east coast climbing destination and have a storied history dating back to the 1930's.

Memorial Day Weekend at Acadia National Park (May 27-29)

Acadia National Park features fantastic climbing (usually toproping) on sea cliffs at Otter Cliff and also several other areas for trad climbing and toproping.
