Ascent Trip Report

Bonds Traverse from Zealand Road to Lincoln Woods - started early 7:30am under clear skies. Weather stayed great all day. Thunderstorms in distance when we were on Bondcliff, but never rained on us or threatened the traverse. Hit Zealand first with nice views from zeacliff and had beautiful vistas of the pemi and surrounding peaks from Guyot and the Bonds. The last 9 miles are downhill/flat without views, but fast. Stopped at Franconia falls for watersliding! Finished at 6:30 including about 1.5 hours of stops for lunch/snacks/swimming. Boots gave me trouble around mile 11-12, but worked it out and finished feeling good.
