There is plenty more potential in this area, if you continue walking uphill there is a variety of boulders of different shapes and sizes that can be bouldered and if you continue up there is some potential for some hard bolted routes. The boulders in this area get neglected because the falls are scary but with enough spotters and pads there could be a lot of quality stuff up here.
Also if you were to walk east past the Stone Wall Boulder and Smoke and Mirrors Boulder, away from the main pound section, there are a lot of little boulders that are great for beginners if they got a little more attention, my friend Alex coined this Munchkin Land due to the fact that they are relatively short problems.

A HUGE thanks to Jay for reorganizing The Pound by boulder!
Also I have written the descriptions for each boulder, if anyone has anything they think I should add to a description for any boulders please put it in the comments and I will gladly add the info in.

|I found a cool line high up on the hillside the other day. Its comes out of a cave on a pretty steep face and tops out on good holds. The landings a little sketcy but all and all it was a fun climb, definitely worth checking out. Follow the trail up past the established hillside boulder to the top of the hill and turn right after about 30 yards you see a look out back towards rumney rocks with some exposed rock. The cave is inbetween two boulders. Climbs from left to right.|

|I found a New England bouldering guide book right next to Tweekers at the pound the other day. If anyone has lost this let me know and I can get it to you.|
