Reaching new heights

The Haverhill Gazette

---- — There are no baseballs or bats, no basketballs or hoops.

But there are rocks, plenty of them, and a wall so high that it strikes fear in some kids.

But others are excited to take on the wall — and so rock climbing at the YMCA begins.

The Y offers plenty of traditional sports, but has been adding offbeat activities like climbing the wall.

The children are taking to new heights with the help of YMCA staff members.
