Comments: Maybe a perfect day in the Whites! Blue skies, warm weather, and an awesome traverse from Zealand, over the Bonds, and out Lincoln Woods. Needed spikes maybe halfway up Zealand. Then it was on/off A LOT, but mostly on until the top of Guyot. Then back on until the top of Mt Bond. Not much use after that. Saw a number of people heading up Bondcliff without any traction. Definitely needed for the traverse though. Only saw about 8 other people. The side trip to West Bid had a number of blowdowns, but nothing too hard to get over. A truly awesome day!
