Originally called The Tomato Overhangs, but nowadays more often simply referred to as the Warm-up Area or "Let's meet at Mack's Traverse", this area is just up the hill from the northern most point of the loop road, just across the road from picnic area #59. Due to it's central location to much of the bouldering and ample numbers of south facing lines, it is often used as a meet up point. There are four ledges: from right to left- the Warm-up Boulder, Iron Cross, Mack's Traverse, and the Warm-up Cave. Down the hill a little, near the edge of the little pond are the Lilly Pad Boulders. There are routes from V0 to V11+
If coming in from the Twin Rivers Rd entrance off of Rt146, once in the park take a left and find a parking spot, then continue on the road past the gate on foot. Stay to the right on the main road and in a couple minutes the road will pass a little pond on the left and an inlet of Olney pond on your right. Shortly past the water, across from the big dirt parking spot of picnic area #59, you should see a path (picnic site #27) leading up the hill to the left. Hike in a little and look off to your left.

Start matched on a crimp that I guess looks like an axe head (doesn't to me) about 6 feet up. Pull off the ground and use a high left foot to make a hard move up to two crimps in a slot. A small but helpful intermediate softens the precision needed for this move. Finish with one more move to the lip and then top out.I've always seen this listed as v2, but it is hard as heck for a 2 imo. The bigger your fingers, the harder the move since the slot is rather tiny despite all the chalk there....[more] Browse More Classics in Rhode Island
