Comments: Eric, It's $10 per additional person but $34 for a tent site. Unless you are getting a special deal or their web site is wrong.

Comments: Yup...$34 is the rate for a tent site at Baker River. I recommend staying at the Little House Inn and Hostel right in Rumney village. It is $40 and you get a bed and hot shower. Lots of climbers there and nice folks who run it.

Comments: Info on this crag is in David Fasulo's new CT guidebook "Rock Climbing Connecticut. The routes here tend to be really mossy and slick due to little activity (at least when I climbed it). Some of the routes have been modernized (not by me). There is limited parking at the YMCA lot with a pass. You can get a pass from the Ragged Mountain Foundation website. raggedmtn.org/electric-rocks/

We climbed Dolt a few weeks ago (Aug 7th 2016) and it is fine. ??

Comments: The start is hard to find (for me anyway). The buttress is not so prominent. If you scramble up left around the corner of the buttress a short ways you can see the first bolt. Mostly 5.7 climbing until the crux headwall. Appropriately named.

Comments: Does anyone know the rating of the climb just to the left of this? It goes up the arete and then the chimney between the face this guy is on and the left wall. It finishes up left. We were having a debate as to the grade.

Comments: Kasey, I hung a rope on this today and rope-soloed it. I don't mean to be a jerk and sandbag your route but I tried to make it as hard as I could and couldn't come up with anything harder than 5.8. Maybe a reach thing? I'm 5'11". If you do Battle of the Bulge 5.11- over on Crag 6 that should be only slightly harder than a 5.10+. It is WAY harder than this route.

Comments: I've been going here for many years and maybe because of that I've never thought it was hard to find any of the crags. From the second (north) trailhead follow the main trail. You will see crags 1,2,3,4 on your left as soon as you go down a steep hill. To get to Crags 5,6,7 keep going on the trail for a hundred yards or so. You will see a stone wall that crosses the road. Right after that look for a trail on the left where it starts to get swampy. I put a cairn there but it may or may not ... more >>

Comments: Kasey,

The first parking lot coming from RT 6 or the first lot from RT 5? I may have climbed on that cliff before but whether I've done that exact route is doubtful.
There is an old guidebook on my website. climbri.org/snake.htm

Comments: There is lots of rock in the area. Some even tall enough to climb. The problem is most is on private land.

Comments: I'm not sure if any of you are aware of this, I wasn't, but the RI State Park Regulations have changed with regard to rock climbing. It use to just say that rock climbing was permitted in all state parks and management areas except for Fort Wetherill. It now requires a waiver of liability (section below). You can get a copy of the waiver here: climbri.org/DEM-Waiver.pdf You may want to have a copy in your car or pack in case a DEM cop ever asks for it.

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.
