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.

Deadly Pillars V1 5 NH : WM: Waterville Valley : ... : The Pillars
A beautiful but terrifying line, Deadly Pillars climbs the lower face on the downhill pillar boulder. Start on a sloping jug and work up the arete to get your feet established on the jug. Now, make insecure, horrifying moves, up the less-steep face. As you notice the pads recede into the distance and your fingertips start sweating, steel yourself for the sloping topout. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NH
