Had our first go at the Basin today and enjoyed the rock and surroundings. Finding the boulders for the first time is non-trivial and I would suggest the following edit to reach the Welcome Wall (East Side).
There's a small parking lot for Bald Rock Basin located at the end of John Todd Way in Redding, CT. From the parking lot follow the blue blazed trail North. Continue North at the junction and follow sign to Bald Rock. From Bald Rock continue along the dirt road out into the power lines past four poles (including the pole you see immediately as you enter the cut) and then (close to the fifth pole) follow slight trail (hard) left (SW) into the woods and down into the basin. After a few minutes working your way down you will see the Welcome Wall to your right.

Just a warning... the power lines host massive tick populations and we stopped going in that way all together as we weren't excited about pulling 10+ ticks off us per visit.
It is also significantly longer if you are trying to get to the west side and you also miss some good bouldering between bald rock and the basin.
