Peace Dove Boulder Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: topo
Good collection of problems on two boulders, most notably Peace Dove and Warhawk.
From the main parking lot, follow the road past the gate, right at the fork, and when the road starts to lead away from the pond, take any of the trails on your right such as to Great Slab, Try Again, etc... Go past all these boulders and eventually you'll hit a large trail merge with what looks like a dirt road. Take the trail that leads up a hill and at the top of the hill you should see the Peace Dove boulders on your right.
I put a rough approximation of the coordinates - gives you an idea of where it is at least, sort of near the little peninsula.

The name comes from the Graffiti Dove that is still visible on the face. Start standing on the right side of the the face with which ever holds feel good. Make your way up and left on the arete using slopers and anything else you can find. This problem is so much fun and is pretty technical. I recommend it from a sit at V4 but I think most everyone does it from the stand the first time around.Hint: An inobvious sidepull pocket in the face is helpful for many, might want to look for it ahead ...[more] Browse More Classics in Rhode Island

Years ago, Whitey told me about a John bragg problem on the "back side" of the Peace Dove. Anything ? Mark ?

That would be Bragg's Grab. Baird wrote "Start on the left hand end of the back (descent) side of the boulder. Ascend the face on extremely sharp razor like holds, staying just right of the left edge. near the top reach around to small sharp holds on the left and swing around the corner. Reach high to a cluster of fluted sharp holds and crank for the top". I haven't been over there in long enough that I don't know if the details of the description are still good or if holds have changed. Paul called it 5.10+. Joe has it listed as the standing start of Warhawk in his guide, but it sounds like it might be a little differant (but close enough). I would have to refresh myself with the boulder.

Yeah, that sounds different than the stand to Warhawk and sounds like the face just to the right of the arete. I was told that Bragg had done the arete from the stand. Interesting...
