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.

Oblivious to Danger V5 6C NH : Pawtuckaway : Round Pond
One of the best highballs in the park, this obvious face climb sat either dormant or unclimbed until late summer of 2011. Start on two good edges to the right of Cream and pull up to a slopey undercling in the dihedral. Stand up and reach for a left crimp (this move is shown in the photo), then bump your hand up the underclings.
