Welcome to Rhode Island Climbing! The ClimbRI website was started in 1995 to promote the sport of climbing by providing information on where Rhode Islanders can rock climb in the Ocean State and nearby Connecticut and Massachusetts. Please email me with suggestions, additions, and corrections.
Climbing in "Little Rhody" means climbing on diminutive cliffs or peeble wrestling on boulders. In the climbing community the state is only known for bouldering, primarily in Lincoln Woods. This web site does not include bouldering, only climbing. I defer to boulderers to cover that and recommend Mountain Project as a source. There is a joke among locals that the best Rhode Island climbing areas just happen to be in Connecticut. The two main climbing areas for Rhode Islanders are Ross Rocks, which is four miles from the RI border, and Lantern Hill which is eight miles from the border. Considering that Rhode Island is only 35 miles wide these areas are closer to Rhode Island than most climbers in Connecticut.
