Rhode Island like its diminutive size has little boulders with very little climbing that involves more than a half dozen moves from sitting on the ground. Few people realize that four and a half miles over the Rhode Island border in Killingly Connecticut there are 85-foot cliffs. Here lies Ross Rocks which many of the locals jokingly refer to as a Rhode Island crag located in Connecticut. Also called Ross Pond, it is 40 minutes from Providence and due to its proximity is mostly frequented by Rhode Island climbers.
