BETA PHOTO: Second Talus from the red trail.


A second cluster of rock just south of the main talus area. The boulders here are generally smaller and less impressive than the ones in the main talus area, but there's still a few good lines to be found.

Getting There 

Follow the trail south from the bottom of the talus area about 100 yards and hike up the hill. If there are no leaves on the trees, this area is very visible from the trail.

Use a variety of jammed appendages to get on top of the fin, and then top out on the left side of the prow....[more]   Browse More Classics in Rhode Island

So, I think, The Roofs area is kind of at the top of the hill (before you get back to the red trail) in this area.

Joe, I walked between the areas today to see whether it would make more sense just to include these boulders in The Roofs area. They felt like separate areas, as The Roofs is further along the hill and not really above this area, and approaching The Roofs via Second Talus only really made sense if already on top of the hill.

I think two separate areas makes sense.
