Good number of problems with some easy, some moderates, and some hard climbs.

The warm ups, Neil's lunge, and some of the harder low starts are a lot of fun. There is even a V11 traverse that starts low left and moves through the entire wall.

Getting There 

This is the leftmost cliff in the warmup area with a well worn landing area below the climbs (very muddy at times). Basically from the main parking lot and one-way gate, walk along rode, right at fork, it's on your left after you pass the small pond on your left and a little bit left/down the hill of Mack's traverse.

Neil's Lunge V4- 6B  Rhode Island : Lincoln Woods : ... : Warm Up Cave
This was my first V4 and I still love doing it every time I visit the warm up cave. Thankfully it feels a bit easier now than that first time!Start on the obvious left facing flake in the center of the wall. Make some fun moves up the flake to two crimps then a tougher move to the sidepull (or gaston) and one more tricky move to the top.And avoid good holds out right for full value.*Beta* - If you are having trouble getting the sidepull, consider getting clever with the flake and your right he...[more]   Browse More Classics in Rhode Island

Warm up cave speed-run video tutorial.

Almost complete. missed grades at the beginning and a few variations later on (soft clutch, etc). Thought this might be helpful to someone who has never been before.

Sorry that the audio and video quality aren't top notch
