Came up from Galehead to a very windy, rainy and cloudy summit. The clouds would break for a second to give a tantalizing view of the Bondcliffs, then immediately close up again.
One of the best hikes in NH
Five hours and fifteen minutes to the summit from the Zealand Road trailhead (this includes the side trip to West Bond). The weather was terrible but occasionally I got a glimpse of Bondcliff and West Bond through the clouds.
I bagged this peak as part of a 1.5 day Pemi Loop trip where I bagged 10 4K summits in all (plus a few that didn't count). The weather was incredible, but the ridge line was bone dry and had I been smart I would have refilled my water at Liberty Spring because I was desperate by the time I was coming off Garfield. Bond was nice but to me it was a waypoint between The other two Bonds because my favorites of them all were West Bond and Bondcliff where solitude abounded and the stark beauty of the ledges around the summits made for a fantastic opportunity to sit and soak in all of natures beauty.
A great peak in the Whites. Summitted twice, as we were staying at the Guyot campsite and did a trip up and over to Bondcliff and then back. Definitely worth the extra night at Guyot campsite to summit the Bonds. Peak #9 on our 5-day trip.
Did as part of a 2 day pemi loop. The views were incredible on an otherwise cloudy day.
Did a Pemi Loop over 2.5 days with a couple of friends. Going counter clockwise, camped at Guyot and Garfield tent sites. Saw an awesome lightning over a town to the north storm from Garfield; got hailed on in a lightning storm on the way out on the last day. Had a bottle of Bowmore with us.
bonds are beautiful and secluded, way out there, great overnight
Just an awesome location and some of the best views. The guyot campsite was crowded and did not live up to my expectations tho.
one of favorite memories are the laser red sun rays coming into the shelter early one morning on the eastern side of mt bond
the whites have an endless amount of natural beauty to enjoy
So I did about 19.8 miles in eight hours from trailhead back to trailhead. Hitting all the bonds, guyot and zealand. I did not do hale though. I was just wondering if anyone knows that fastest KNOWN time for that hike. I am well aware its not a standard hike that has listed fast times but just curious. I was shooting for 9 hours and was pysched to hit eight. So I was just curious if anyone out there knows of ay claims to that specific hike.
of many more
I climbed the ridgeline from Lincoln Woods and out by Zealand Falls with my dad, brother, and sisters. We stayed overnight at Guyot.
Traversed the ridge via Zealand and out Lincoln Woods
I arrived on Mt. Bond after going over Zealand, Guyot, and West Bond. It's a great mountain.
This was part of a great trip across the Pemi as part of the AMC's MLS. The views and the trails were great. Can't wait to do it again!
Came up from Bondcliff. Didn't wait too long as we had to do West Bond and then get to the Guyot Campsite. Was about a 13 mile day.
Climbed with South Twin, Guyot and North Twin via the Twinway Trail from Galehead. Amazing views from both peaks. At times it threatened to rain but we were lucky as we were able to avoid the worst of the storm. Things started fogging in on Bond so we decided to save Bondcliff for another day. It was the right decision.
Managed 29 miles and 6100 vertical feet on a day with wet and muddy trails, intermittent rain, and three shoe-soaking, nerve-rattling stream crossings on the Franconia Brook Trail. Took 15+ hours.
