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.

Podlings V4 6B  New Hampshire : WM: Waterville Valley : ... : The Dark Crystal Boulder
This is the route that really makes The Dark Crystal Boulder unique! A series of pockets that traverse this side of the boulder and it's slightly overhanging angle combine for an excellent set of natural features.Start on the right side at a good pocket. Traverse the pods left then top out. Your feet will never be more then 3ft of the ground. The sit start (either continuing into Podlings or topping out straight up) is still a project. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Hampshire
