Rarely if ever crowded, there is a fine collection of problems/routes here that for the most part don't get any attention as people walk by from Round Pond to Boulder Natural. As with the rest of the park, these boulders/crags are granite, and most of them are in the shade, with the exception of Lakeside Crag, which can be fully climbable in the middle of winter. There are a variety of highball boulder problems as well as lowballs, and a scattering of toprope/trad climbs on the cliffs ranging from easy 5.3 chimney/crack climbs to hard 5.13 face climbs.
From the Horse Farm parking, just walk down towards Round Pond. The first massive boulder on the right before you hit the Pond is the Mir Boulder (aka Roadside Chimney Boulder). There is an info booth just to the right. From Round Pond parking, just cross the stream on the left and you'll see the boulders (Three Chimney Area aka Tin Can Alley) and Lakeside Crag.
