Matt Giossi on the start of Jabba the Hut


One lone erratic amid all the quarries in the Black Hut wildlife management area in Burrivile RI. High quality granite, 18 ft tall with honest climbing to the top. Problems range from V2 to V9.

Getting There 

Take rt 102 west from rt 146. Turn right onto rt 107 north. As you drop into Harrisville, just before the dam, take a right onto Spring Lake rd. Turn right onto Black Hut rd, and in a mile look for a small gated turnout on the left, just left of a driveway. If you hit the lake you have gone too far. Follow red dot trail, look for big bloc on your left.

any pics? I may be in the area soon for some bouldering and was wondering if this is worth a stop... 18 ft of honest climbing sounds nice!
