Climbing at Rock Rimmon

Let's meet up at Rock Rimmon for a day of outdoor climbing.  The plan is to do a little of TR and trad, with some of us working on smoothing out our rope technique and transitions.  Beginners are welcome.

Rock Rimmon is located in Manchester, NH, less than an hour drive from Boston.  While it is an urban climb (i.e., it has paint, beer cans, and glass), the crag has a 150 foot cliff, and routes that vary from 5.2 to 5.12, and is in better shape than QQ.  See Mountain Project ( http://mountainproject.com/v/rock-rimmon-manchester/105977968 ).

Please bring your climbing gear.  At the minimum you will need your harness, climbing shoes, helmet, belay device, and a locker.  Parking is very close to the cliff so you can grab what you want and leave the rest in the car.

If it's a wet day, we'll meet up at Metrorock Everett, MA, at 10 AM instead.

    Great day of climbing with Lovena and the group from the NH Rock Climbers Meetup. The crag, which is not too far from Boston, has several superb beginner routes. The only problem is that it is very dirty from kids throwing trash off the cliff and landing at the bottom where climbers have to belay. There was a lot of trash and broken glass! There is some effort to try to clean up the place. It's cleaned once a year--already once this year. But it will a lot of work (cleaning several times per year), along with police helping in patrolling the place.

    Nice meeting you at Watertown the other night. I look forward to climbing with you outdoors soon. Unfortunately I have to beg out this weekend....just learned I have unexpected house guests coming in Saturday night.
    Have a good climb.

    I will look forward to being there. I have no ropes, anchors, cams, etc. but have the "minimum" stuff you mention. See you there!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
