Venom. big roof

Description 

Several small cliffs with some hard routes and decent bouldering. Not a lot of quantity but some good quality.


Getting There 

Snake Den State Park is located in Johnston off Route 6 (Hartford Ave). From Providence follow Rte 6 west. Two miles west of Rte 295 take a right on Brown Ave. After about two miles there is a small parking area on the left. Cross the street and follow the trail for a few hundred yards and you will see the cliffs.

Huge overhang. Start down and on the right, traverse out the huge roof on jugs. Careful some of the upper holds are a little suspect...[more]   Browse More Classics in Rhode Island

Does anyone know anything about the bolt that looks like it is at the start of "Battle of the Bulge." It is one lone bolt that doesn't do any good. Did someone start to bolt this route and quit?

I have seen that bolt too, Brian. No idea who put it there or why...
