Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All were rock hoppable, even by my pupper! 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Not sure what the wilderness guidelines are for blowdowns but there are a bunch of straddle overs, 1 or 2 walk arounds, and one branchy one - all within the 4-6-ish mile range. Tons of step-overs along the tracks after the wilderness sign but I’m guessing those might be within guidelines? 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Took mine, she was the only one I saw all day. FYI there is reliable water available for the pups until the last crossing 1+ miles before the Bondcliff summit. No water the last mile or along the ridge. 
Bugs
Bugs: Black flies out in force at the lower elevations, biting, and flying into nostrils and eyes. Headnet went on for the last 5 miles. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: There was a black fleece technical jacket on a rock about 6 miles in, in the morning. I intended to pack it out if it was still there on my way out, but it was gone. Hopefully gets returned to owner. I did pack out a large black plastic trash bag tied to a tree at the next to last water crossing on the ascent. Leave no trace! 
 
Comments
Comments: No snow or ice until between Bond and West Bond. It was only sporadic short lengths of decaying monorail, most of it being on WB Spur. Fabulous conditions otherwise!
