Great Views! - Via BondCliff Trail Date Climbed: May 26, 2007
Part of a weekend of Bond, Bond Cliff, Zealand. Guyout was almost full when we got there. Glad we had a tent. It filled so that folks were in overflow later. Still a bunch of snow and ice around, could have used crampons.
Most recently as part of a day hike to Bond from Lincoln Woods; previously as part of a four-day clockwise Pemi Loop. I liked the northern approach better, since it meant I didn't have to do the long, flat Wilderness Trail twice in one day . Also, the Bondcliff trail north of Bondcliff is one of the best ridge walks in the Whites, and much less crowded than Franconia Ridge or the Presis.
The trip was great although we didn't bring enough food. We wilderness camped friday, stayed at Guyot on Saturday night and summited Bondcliff, Bond, West Bond and Guyot. The hike out from Guyot on Sunday was very long and tough on an empty stomach.
