Comments
Comments: We wanted to do the traverse before Zealand Rd. closed. We all wore light traction from the hut to part way down the Bondcliff Trail. The footing from the summit of Bond to the open ledges of Bondcliff was tricky because the snow filled in the holes between the rocks. No wind, sunny, a gorgeous day.
