Description

This is a small area on land trust land that only recently received the ok for climbing. Please treat the area with the utmost respect as there are many houses within earshot of most of the climbing. As of now and thanks to the work of Adam Buteau, the town has given permission to climb there. If the area gets overrun and climbers don't behave, that could change.

Getting There

In Smithfield, NW of Providence, just outside the Rt 295 ring. From http://smithfieldri.com/seven-scenic-walks/ "From Greenville, take Pleasant View Avenue (Route 116) north to Swan Road, then follow Swan Road to its end, about 1.5 miles. At the T junction with Mann School Road, go right and then almost immediately take a left onto Connors Farm Road. After about 0.3 miles, look for a small parking area on the left between houses numbered 20 and 24."

The southern entrance is reached by going left on Mann School Road from the T for ~6/10s of a mile and it will be on your right. It can handle up to 3 cars and is the most direct for the Fortress.

You can find a little more information and photos on the above site.

Dana, surpisingly, the Fortress is now part of the park (I don't think it was originally) AND there is a small legit parking area about 100 yards away (next to a giant under construction house). Oct 27, 2015

Dana, looking at the maps, I think so. I'm going to check it out shortly... Oct 22, 2015
Glad to see this place get some access. The Fortress wall is fairly close to some houses if I remember correctly. Is that area now legal also? Oct 22, 2015
According to the map I have, there are 3 parking areas, but the one I use is a grass parking area on Connors Farm Drive. Its between two houses and is not very big, you can fit maybe 5 or 6 cars. This entrance is tucked in the back of a very nice culdasac so please carpool if you can so we dont clutter the street. Oct 21, 2015

Nice to see some new activity going on in the state and people actually sharing. Thanks Joe and Adam. Looks like a great new area. Looking forward to checking it out.

So where do you park? Kind of sparse with your descriptions/directions as usual, Joe ;) Oct 21, 2015
