Comments: From gale river n twin spur twin way, bond cliff trail, lend a hand and hale brook

Yesterday, galehead, s twin, n twin, west bond, Zealand and Hale in 15 hours. Now only 15 left for this months grid. We the Monkeys (Miles and Smiles) had a very sweet day. We started at 5 am. I was surprised to see the Garfield trail sign. Oh no we slept at the wrong trailhead. I walked 1.6 miles to the Gail river trail. I
The trails were packed so just used hillsounds so I hiked quickly to gale head and s twin. The trail to n twin had a bit of blown snow over the old snowshoes. We I reached s twin i put on snow shoes and I tried using guthook ap though I wanted my hands free so I I used the Garmin Montana. I messed up again like last week for the first .2. Then I followed off on previous tracks 60% of the time. This time I had no music on and it was less stressful. It still took two hours to reach. Bond cliff trail . W bond I pretty much hiked the same route as last week . The trail from guyot was unbroken though it was easier to find than the tricky twin way. Zealand had a path to near the summit. Then there was a packed trail to the hut. At the start of the lend a hand trail I used hillsounds . The climb up and over hale was fast. We made it to Piemobile and drove to hostel. A fun day and saw no one else.
