Collection of Boulders around Round Pond. This Area is very similar to Blair Woods in rock quality. However, Round Pond is my personal favorite cool down spot in the fall bouldering season because it is awesome to hike out with a few cold ones and boulder a bit then kick back next to the pond and boulders and relax after a day of pulling hard.
Hike/drive to Round Pond and explore the hilltop. Most of the boulders near the top of the small hill and the "Balance Boulder" and the warm-up boulder mark the end of the area (yes it is kinda small). All the other boulders between the warm-up and the pond and the trail have great problems.

This problem starts sitting on a good jug. You maneuver yourself under an overhang, moving right, with your feet on a slick rock slab and try to stick the severely sloping crimp-rail with both hands. Then, for the crux: you shoot a hand up, blindly grasping a very sloping, but nicely textured open hand grip. More hard moves ensue, possibly making use of a heelhook to the right, eventually moving up to a nubbin that is a couple of feet above the sloper. Moving left can reveal more sidepulls. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
