Comments: I think that the person was trying to do the right thing in painting the hanger but just doesn't have much knowledge/experience. So instead of the default Mountain Project response of beating on him/her I think it is a better approach to provide some constructive guidance. If you want to paint the hanger and bolt while on the rock you can get a piece of thin cardboard and trace the hanger on that. Then cut that out so that the cardboard just fits over the hanger. Place the cardboard over the... more >>

Comments: I climbed on a small cliff off of Meadowbrook trail many years ago. It is not actually in the Carolina Management area. It is on private land just north of Kenyon Hill Trail. That's the only one I know of in that area.

Comments: This shows the directions to get there. It also shows routes we led on gear but there are some overhanging potential boulder problems on the left (south) edge of the cliff. climbri.org/breakheart.htm A mountain bike is the best way to get there.

Comments: There is a fairly large (by RI standards) cliff in the woods north west of Breakheart Pond. I would think that boulderers would find it interesting. The crux is finding it. It is much easier to find in the winter than when leaves are on the trees. If you want directions message me.

Comments: If you are going to top out you will want a rope in many places. It is 25 feet tall in some spots with rocks below.

Comments: This is a duplicate entry for the Gray Matter Route. I believe that this has always been considered part of the Feather Ledges.

Comments: I've done a bit quite a few years ago. We attempted a north face route on the Eiger but it was in the summer and too warm. Waterfalls were running everywhere blocking our route. We made the summit via the Mittellegi route. There is so much rock there you can spend your life in Switzerland and never have to climb the same route.

Comments: It is amazing on how much the glacier has shrunk. I was there ten years ago in July and it was much bigger.

Comments: To access the northern cliffs on the east side of the road park at the Appalachian Trail trailhead parking lot. Walk across the road and look for a faint trail. From here you can see the cliffs. Skirt along the bottom of the cliff looking for bolts and climbs. Have fun.

Comments: To access the southern most cliffs at Kinsman park on Lost River Road (RT 112)on the east side by an phone/electrical box. The electrical box is on the right side of RT 112 about 4.2 miles from the traffic light in North Woodstock. Go in the woods directly behind the box and you should find a cairn to the left. Follow the trail with surveyors tape on the trees to the lower cliff not seen in the picture. When you can see the lower cliff you will be on what looks like an old logging trail that go... more >>

Comments: I think including a map help would help? I have to agree with Mike that most people don't know what/where a coastal slope is. I found this map via a search for Connecticut coastal slope.

Comments: Are you taking about this overhang (orange variation)? Photo: climbri.org/mttom.htm This has been done before. Just about every conceivable variation of every conceivable route has been done. This area was climbed a lot back in the 80s.

Comments: I just did this route again after many years. Like many Gunks routes the rating should be according to height. The Gunks is full of horizontals and if you can reach the next horizontal jug it may feel like 5.7 but it you can't it may feel like 5.10.

So this is an approximation of the rating based on height, according to me, your mileage may vary.
6.2 ft 5.7
5.10 ft 5.8
5.6 ft 5.9
5.2 ft 5.10

Comments: Thanks. That's the route. It didn't feel that hard but after all the crimpy climbs I did it might have just felt easier.

Comments: Yeah even the WMCC identifies the climb by name. The group guarding the secret. It seems a bit hypocritical.

Comments: LOL...posting the photo and the grade of the route is okay, but posting the name might make it easier to find? Or people won't climb it if they don't know the route's name? Illogical.

There are lots of full grown (black) rat snakes at Rattlesnake.

Comments: There is a new route on the far right side of the cliff. Tan bolt hangers on the easy side. Anyone know what it is named and rated?
