Home to a great and easy looking, but hard to climb, crack "Rhode Island Ripper.

The name of the boulder is for lack of a better one. Let me know if you have another name.

Getting There

Hike above the Green Cave, keeping an eye out for a beautiful looking crack splitting a face that faces downhill.

[Hide Comment] There's a few ways to get here. You can enter the green cave and climb up and out of it. You can hike up around the green cave entrance and do a short climb up to it. Or you can hike up above Biscuit and the Bat Cave area and go straight up on top of the cave and walk around the left to the back side. Sep 23, 2014

[Hide Comment] I named it after Nick from RI who I was hoping would get the fa after a summer of awesome bouldering. Harder than we thought he left to go back to Ri without ever sending it... Jul 21, 2018
