Comments: I do this problem every time I am at Try Again, though I start sitting with the left hand on the broken start hold of Pete's and a low right sidepull (just above the good foot).

Comments: Not trying to be a jerk, Mark, but if there's no info on how to request permission, the boulders are essentially off-limits unless you happen to know the owner, right? Is the owner cool with just anyone asking if they can climb here or does he just want his friends on his property? The owner can do whatever he wants since he's the owner, but posting to a public website like this would only make sense if he wants strangers contacting him and coming to his... more >>

Comments: Was thinking the same thing, Jim, almost seems like a "look at these really cool boulders that you can't climb on..." kind of thing. Been a few of these posted lately and am wondering if MP should have a policy of removing areas with access issues???

Comments: The Blue and Red Trails where? This gives no information as to even what Town this spot is in???? Also, the map has this located in someone's front yard???

Comments: So, we did a sit start to the arĂȘte to the left of this finishing as you did, and a direct sit start in the middle of the crack to the crack and the same finish. I will add these soon!

Comments: I have a whole bunch of problems to add to this area. We climbed here a few years ago and did around 20 problems or so up to V6 or 7. Nice micro area!

Comments: Ok, I'm all for adding routes to this area, but let's not get crazy with the FAs. People have been climbing at Snake Den since the late 60s, at least. Ed Sewall's old guide mentions some easy routes on the right side of Crag 4 that were clearly climbed but not deemed worthy to make his guidebook. Go ahead and make up names, as there's nothing worse than unnamed routes but there probably isn't much that hasn't been done at the Crags in Ed's guide...

Comments: I suspect that climb you did was in the area labeled "quarry" as there seem to be quarry marks on the rock you are climbing...

Comments: I once stepped in a bees nest at Gilbert Hills, went in past my ankle. Looked down and saw a shit ton of bees. Lucky for me it was cold and I didn't even get stung. Scared the crap out of me though...

Comments: I'm sure this has been done before, probably by Justin or Kozo or maybe one of the RI South crew, but it should still be added here. Only thing is there is already a problem called Cold Shoulder at the Lower Heart, so it should probably have a different name...

Comments: Unfortunately, Taylor, it's the nature of bouldering at Lincoln Woods. The rock is so climbable that a lot of problems end up having rules to keep them at a certain difficulty. There's nothing wrong at all with climbing any piece of rock however you want to climb it but some of the "classics" do have specific rules from back in the day...

Comments: I remember there being a slabby boulder right of this that was covered in lichen, is that the one? I didn't have a good wire brush with me to clean it off...

Old hand drawn topo from back in the day. I'm told the ratings are way off, but they are the ones the Smith Bros. gave me....


Old hand drawn topo from long ago. I'm told the ratings are way off but those were what was told to me when I went out there in the mid 90s...

Comments: Starts on the jug just before turning the corner on Loadies Dream but goes up staying left of the big holds in the crack? That would be Tree Scraper, V2 stand, V5 sit. Really fun but sucks if you pop off and scrape down the tree...

Comments: When we first did these problems, we tried to climb them as pure roof problems with minimal reaching the feet to the back wall. It probably makes them contrived but I'm sure it also makes them easier...

Comments: I miss climbing with Chris back here in RI, so unassuming but always psyched and encouraging. Glad to hear he is still putting up new routes that no one else had the eye for!
