Description Suggest change

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.

There are many classic lines, including The Whip(V2), Bring the Ruckus(V3), Dopeman(V8), and Gadgetry(V5).

This area is being / has been re-organized 12/7/22 with each individual boulder being a separate sub-area.

Getting There Suggest change

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.
