Good little area with a bunch of moderates and one hard problem.

Getting There 

Park in the southeast portion of the Site. In the summer you can drive right to these boulders which are just before picnic area 9c. In the winter, you need to park at a gate at the end of the dirt road.

Featured Route For The Alcove
Rock Climbing Photo: Frustration Jam

Frustration Jam V0-1 4+  Rhode Island : Lincoln Woods : ... : Betty Boulder
This is the perfect finger crack that splits the Betty Boulder. The guide lists it as V0, but definitely a little harder if you eliminate the big pocket up high on the left and just stick to the crack. Baird rated this 5.8+ on the YDS....[more]   Browse More Classics in Rhode Island
