This is a small crag facing Round Pond.... A great collection of crack climbs of different grades.... The best ones are Lakeside Jam (5.7), and China Dragon (5.10).... This cliff is often overlooked by the hoards of people at the upper and lower cliffs.... Top ropes are easily set from pine trees at the top of the cliff....
