BETA PHOTO: Map to Left Field
Left Field is the most remote, well developed winter climbing area at the Bald. The rock is more featured than the Bald proper. The rock quality is generally very good, but a few routes have some lesser quality rock on easy sections. The airy position on many routes is spectacular and adds a great deal to appeal of this more adventuresome area.
The area is located about 300 yards left of Hanging Chain. Hike cross-country on the plateau well below Hanging Chain to an old logging road that angles up and west at a fairly steep grade. Follow this for 200 yards passing several large boulder on the plateau to your left. There may still be cairns to follow. Leave the road up a steep ridge and switch back your way up to the base of a small cliff. Follow this band west to a very large boulder that is just below the base of Left Field. Hiking time is 30-45 minutes.
