DescriptionWith its many small crags and superb views you may want to stop and climb something along the hike. If so bring a small rack and a rope to see what you can find. The best crags are found near the summit.The routes are short but of the same high quality as neighbouring Dickey Ledge. The big east facing slab that is seen from Rt. 49 is more suitable for skiing than climbing.
As of right now there are four small crags with established routes on them listed in descending elevation, west to east and left to right if looking up the Welch Mtn. trail they are, The Summit Cliff, The Nursery, Grape Juice Wall, and The Hikers Wall. More info soon.
Getting ThereTake Exit 28 off I 93 and head east on route 49 towards Waterville Valley. After about 5 miles turn left onto Upper Mad River Rd then turn right onto Osiris Rd. follow the hikers signs to the parking lot.
Take the right hand trail at the beginning of the loop and hike about two miles to reach the summit area of Welch Mt.
