The area surrounding Stubtown Rd, south of Long, Ell and Ashville Ponds, is scattered with large erratics. Good rough rock, flat landings, and nice lines are the attraction. Unfortunately, most, including the huge Midden and surrounding boulder have recently been posted with no trespassing signs and a great deal of the rest is controlled by The Nature Conservancy and The Audubon Society.

The remaining open boulders are literally feet away from private property, or conservancy land. Climbers who go here should try to maintain a low profile, i.e.; small groups, clean off chalk and keep the screaming to a whimper. Be aware that the Audubon ranger is quite agressive in his duties.

Getting There 

Take exit 2 off of Rt 95 and go north on Woodville Alton Rd, which will make a T with Rt 3. Take a left onto Rt 3 and in less than a mile, take a right onto Conanchet Rd, a picturesque back country NE rd. Try not to bomb by the houses. Just after a small mill (Green Plastics) Stubtown Rd is on the left. Some of the Stubtown bouldering is accessed from Ashville pond, which is just a little further north on Canonchet Rd.

Start of the Chowder Traverse.

Chowder Traverse V1-2 5 PG13  Rhode Island : Rockville : ... : Clamshell Boulder
Sit starts and traverse the lip from the left to the right. Traverse out the right over the dropoff and turn the corner to topout. Technically easier than the clamshell traverse but added moves and a mental crux at the end make a great problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in Rhode Island
