Comments
Comments: We were planning an overnight at Guyot, but didn’t make it. The 4 or so inches of snow were already turning to slush from the temperatures and drizzle. We passed at least 6 people who turned around, 3 of whom had stayed overnight but never made it up either. We probably got within a mile of the summit of Bondcliff, but turned around because it was getting too late. The melting slush and hidden mud had begun seeping into my boots before we reached more stable snow about 2 miles from the summit. Our biggest problem was the hidden monorail. It seemed wide and stable, the problem was you couldn’t see it under the fresh snow and would take a step and slide right off.
