Comments
Comments: There is an interesting shortcut on the Zeeland trail. Directly below the hut it turns right and crosses the pond.

The two steep ledges just below the Zeeland summit offer little traction and nothing to grab hold of, but with a little effort they can be done. The ridge between Bond and Bondcliff has been blown clear of snow. There are numerous patches of ice. Light traction helpful.
