The RI boulderer's version of Manifest Destiny: the expansion of routes throughout the warm up cave is both justified and inevitable. In the spirit of Lincoln Woods variations and link ups, this is essentially an extension of Gassed On.

Start at the two jugs for cave warm up, traverse left into the large scoop for Neil's Lunge, then essentially climb Gassed Off in reverse until you get to the start hold of Cave overhang. Climb Cave Overhang to finish.

The moves to get from the Neil's scoop to the first pinch rib under the roof is the crux. Use crazy foot beta, supernatural strength or black magic; whichever you prefer.


Start at the rightmost jugs n the face, move left and stay low through the roof (not using the axehead) until you get to the right side of the boulder then follow the up and left tending crack to the top.


A pad and someone to move it. Or just go on a weekend when the whole cave is decked out.

How about an extension of this to create the Wheel of Lincoln Woods: at the end, traverse back right at mid-height (crimps of New Dimension, Jacked Bagel, and Neil's Lunge, etc.) to finish on the Warm up Problem topout???
