Comments
Comments: Finally did it! Weather was great for our first Pemi Loop except for the descent off Bondcliff where it started to rain and hard enough at times that the trail got quite slick. We made it out, though.

We went clockwise. The trails along the Franconia Ridge are gentle and easy to finish quick. Once you get off the Franconia Ridge, they deteriorate fast and get quite rough. The up-and-downs along the Garfield Ridge were not terrible, but the stair climb from hell up South Twin was miserable. Then over at Bond it is like you are on the Presidentials with all the bouldering that you have to do.

Long, but fun experience.
