Comments
Comments: started off muggy on Lincoln Woods Trail and got warm climbing Bondcliff but once above 3500 feet got into a breezy cloud cover which limited views but made for a very cool and easy traverse over to Guyot. Chilly almost at times..a far cry from the anticipated heat of yesterday's reports. Started to clear a bit from Guyot over to Zeacliff with in and out views. A couple of brief heavy downpours on descent to the hut and beyond but we still too a swim back at the parking lot.


Very nice to run into Randy and group on their traverse. Fine day out with Valerie and friend Andrea from Michigan who bagged 43, 44, 45, 46 today. Thanks Grumpy Gran for the carspot
