I found it fascinating to watch this rock climber puzzle her way up the quarry face near Granite Links Golf Club. It looks like a great sport for mind and body . . . unfortunately, not mine. Quincy was one of the first places in the U.S. where crag climbing was used for mountaineering practice. Today's longest climb is 50 ft. due to the fact that the quarry holes have been filled in with dirt from "The Big Dig" project in nearby Boston.
