Description

So you're on the slabs, the dome, the lower cliff, or the trailside boulders and you look across the marsh to see a giant boulder hidden in the trees. Maybe at some point you go look, but most people don't. What you miss out on is a secluded little area with a bunch of easy to moderate highballs and a few quality shorter problems that in the end would add up to a good day out bouldering.

The granite here is the same as Round Pond and the climbs are shaded for most of the day. There are crimps, cracks, jugs, slopers and even a pocket or two. The majority of the landings are flat, with one exception - there is a rock sitting beneath a difficult highball. People have been climbing here for years and you know you're interested, so go take a look.

Getting There

This small cluster of boulders is sitting between North Marsh and the road. Drive down to Round Pond on Reservation Rd and you'll see them on the left. Park, walk back about 3 minutes, skip into the woods, and you're there.
