There are boulders up there! It's not that surprising, really, when you consider that the area between Welch and Dickie acts as a huge bowl, collecting every erratic that happened to tumble past.
Hike up the Welch side of the trail. After about .7 miles, the trail will take a hard right toward the open slabs on Welch. At this point, leave the trail and walk directly left into the woods. You'll cross a stream and maybe pick up a faint climbers' trail. Follow this trail to a junction marked with a cairn on the ground. To reach the Lower Bowl area, head left (downhill) from the junction and walk about 100 feet. To reach the Mid Bowl and the Upper Bowl areas, head right (uphill) at the junction.

It's not quite the difficulty of Boulder X, but it's close. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NH
