Comments
Comments: Good to see Rocket21 and Nordic Gal. They blew by us and, remarkably, finished in 10 hours. It took me 14.5 hours because trail conditions were very difficult. Rocket's trip report says it all. Zeland Hut seemed full so perhaps the trail between the hut and Bondcliff will be smoothed out with multiple snowshoeers. Anyone thinking they can bare boot or use light traction between the hut and Bond will be in for a rude awakening. We used spikes over Bondcliff and past the col to Bond where we switched to snowshoes to the hut. Cold day, great views nice to be out
