On "Lions and Tigers" a route that was probably created by getting off route on "Lion's Way" or "Tiger's Trail." Anyway...that is how we came upon it. Bugaboos 2007.

Comments: Nickgrai,

Is the cliff down in the southeast area of Snake Den not far from the powerlines and Belfield Drive? If so, I've climbed there. If not, check this place out. JoeM told me about it.

Comments: I've heard this pronounced "Tah-keetz" and "Tah-quits." I've read that the Native Americans pronounce it Tah-keetz but I've heard climbers call it Tah-quits. Which is it?

Comments: There is some confusion as to this climb and Geriatric Therapy. Apparently some people consider going left up the left facing corner to the bolted belay and then on to a third pitch a variation of Geriatric Therapy and some a different climb(All That Jazz). For example, the Handren guidebook considers it a variation of Geriatric Therapy. If you look at the photos for the two climbs they show the same left facing corner second pitch. mountainproject.com/v/10804631...

Comments: Yup...you are right on. Your chimney was a good reference. It is exactly 29 feet from the highest point to the lowest point of the main cliff. The Firewall is 22 feet. I did some climbs on Firewall that I haven't done in at least 20 years. The rock is as chossy as I remember it.

Comments: When we lobbied the RI DEM back in the Spring of 2010 to specifically include climbing in the new "RI Park and Management Area Rules and Regulations" they had included a provision about no fixed gear. Working behind the scenes we got that taken out. So bolting is neither approved nor prohibited. So if you are discreet about it then it shouldn't be a problem.

From the DEM regulations:

17.9 Rock climbing is permitted at state parks, and management areas except at Fort Wetherill State Park... more >>

Comments: Jeff, Main cliff 35 feet tall? Did you measure it? I doubt it is that tall. More like 20 feet tall. I was there today. Next time I'm there I'll measure it.

Comments: Isn't this the same pitch as Geriatric Therapy? It sure looks the same.

Comments: With an exception of a small portion of Turkey where there are no major climbing areas Turkey is in Asia not Europe. It is in the wrong area.
