Bondcliff Trail  Sucess!

Came over from Bondcliff, the clouds started rolling in midway across the ridge. Wind picked up to around 50mph knocking a few of us over. Summit was in clouds. Guyot Campsite was reached through 3-4 feet of snow.

Great Weekend Trip via BondCliff  Sucess!

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.

Cloudy one day clear the next  Sucess!

I convinced my wife to go up after a 10 year hiatus for her. The plan was to wilderness camp one night, head up and hit all 3 (Bond, W Bond, and Bondcliff. Camp abother night, and head back so that each day would be a relatively easy day and we could relax at the campsite. We went up the Wilderness (Lincoln Woods) trail. Did some bushwacking and found a great site in the woods with a short walk to water. Set up camp and hiked up. Soon after we got to that short scramble area, the fog rolled in. We got to Bondcliff but couldn't see more than about 75 feet so went back down. The weather turned beautiful the next morning. We summited Bond and Bond and Bondcliff, but my wife didn't have the stamina to try for the 3 rd on in one day. We camped another night and hiked out the next day. All in all some nice "Bonding" goin' on (pun intended). That photo is me on Bondcliff.

Day After  Sucess!

I found out what had happened the previous day. It was strange to not see any airplanes in the sky. Ran out of food on this hike because the squirrels got into my bear bag the night before.

Zealand Falls Hut  Sucess!

Stayed in the hut for a few nights - what an awesome place. Shoulder deep snow off the trails. The hike to Bond was beautiful, and we had a ruffly looking bird follow us on the trail, hopping from limb to limb.

On the hike up to the hut from the valley, there were deer tracks and a heavy blood trail, but no other tracks. We never figured out how the deer was injured, nor saw any other evidence.

Intro to the Whites  Sucess!

Was planning on doing a big loop, but decided to just hike this and then head out. Not the best decision. We should have stayed, but what can you do? This was a great intro to the Whites. Great views, and an amazing cliff.

Mt Bond via Bondcliff trail  Sucess!

The hike was amazing. quite long but only moderate in difficulty. The total distance didn't seem bad given the reward for the effort. Best hike to date in all of New Hampshire

Route Climbed: Varies Date Climbed: Various times  Sucess!

The Bond(s) are not easy to get at, so when you do get there, they are well worth the effort. The ridge from Bond to the Twins are Excellent! One of my favorites, with Views in all directions.

Route Climbed: Various Date Climbed: Several, 1993-1998  Sucess!

This area is one of my favorite in NH. I've hiked Mount Bond several times on multi-day loop hikes. It's a great place to get away from the typical White Mountain crowds.
