Comments
Comments: The trails are well packed now but that will likely change after the next couple of days. We barebooted to Zealand Hut then wore snowshoes until halfway down from Bondcliff. Some barebooted and others wore light traction the rest of the way. We made it out just after dark. FWIW, the popular Bondcliff Ledge has about a half inch of ice on top. It was a great day out hiking with some new and familiar faces.
