Comments
Comments: Monica and I did the one with the random group of hikers. The day started out with gray skies and snow flurries and finished with headlamps. In between we had some wind and some sun. The skies cleared when we hit Guyot and the sun stayed out until sunset. Easily barebooted from the trailhead to Bond and then decided to put the spikes on for the descent down to Bondcliff. Didn't need them since there was a lot of dry rocks and slabs. Stay on the big bridges - the water and mud underneath hasn't frozen yet (thank you for waterproof winter boots).
