Comments
Comments: Narrow monorail starts from Mt. Bond and ends just beyond Zealand. Parts of it are anywhere from 1 to 2 feet in height. Light dusting of snow & sleet as we climbed Bondcliff Trail. Trip over Bondcliff required caution since the rocks were covered in black ice. Put on spikes at West Bond Spur and removed them around Z-Cliff. Cold temps kept the monorail very stable. The lower part of Lend-a Hand is underwater.



Many thanks to Cameron and Summerset for their generous 'Trail Magic' and note they left at Hale Brook trailhead. It really made our day after the long, difficult 12-hour trek.
