Description 

Bald Knob is a peak that forms the southern end of Acteon Ridge in the Waterville Valley Area. Unlike most of the peaks nearby, there is no trail to the summit of Bald Knob. Because of this, the hike to Bald Knob has become a relatively popular bushwhack (is there such a thing?) for experienced hikers in the area.


Getting There 

You can't get there from here!

Seriously, though, there is no trail to the summit of Bald Knob. Most people bushwhack in from the south.

The Big Short V5 6C  NH : Waterville Valley : ... : Yellowjacket Boulder
The Big Short is the most obvious, striking line on the tallest, steepest part of the Yellowjacket Boulder. The hardest moves are concentrated in the first 10 feet; however, the climbing on the upper wall remains relatively tough (mid 5.11) and is definitely heady. The Big Short is a tall problem; at Rumney, it probably would have been bolted. Start in the scoop with your hands matched on a big sidepull/undercling. Make a move up to a pinch and figure out how to get your righ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
