If you're checking out MASS CLIMBERS for the first time, here's the deal - we're in Massachusetts (physically or metaphysically), we climb. A while ago we started this thread to organize small gatherings so we could meet new climbing partners, welcome new climbers, improve as climbers, and drink beer.

Yes, it's a long thread. No, we don't spend all day on here, it just seems like it. Welcome. Here's the primer, courtesy of cracklover.

In reply to:
I realize that it may not be that clear what this thread is about. Just so you know, the primary purpose of this thread is to organize climbing with each other. Secondary is to share beta on the climbs of the region, and encourage each other in our progress. Third, of course, is social. It's hard enough for those of us who do have valid contributions to stay on track here. So if you do have something valid to add, please step up. If not please step out.

Check out the MASSACHUSETTS ROUTES DATABASE.

What is this thread? More importantly, what has this thread been and what will it be?

It has been a place for climbers from and around Massachusetts to find out about mini state gatherings. It has been a place for the "join me at (insert crag name here) on Saturday" posts, and the "we climb at BRG on Thursday evenings" info ... it has been the perfect partners thread. I even met my future wife on this thread (that last one is not true, actually).

What will it be? Hopefully it will continue for a while to be a good place for people to meet up with partners and find out info about when MASS CLIMBERS are meeting up.

A little history for you ...
A number of Mass Climbers itching to get outdoors in the middle of winter started talking about setting dates for meeting new partners and getting back outside as soon as possible. We started with a day at Quincy Quarries on 1 March, but were rained out of our plans for an April meeting on the 12th at Rose Ledge.

Go to the end of this here thread and get in on the action. MASS CLIMBERS are good, simple folk who enjoy all types of craggin and are proud of our little rocks and the big ones in the states nearby.

Welcome! Check back often for info.
