Ascent Trip Report

One day winter Pemi Loop! Great weather - chilly morning though -gave us incredible views all day - crisp blue skies and sun all morning, some high clouds in the afternoon. Arrived at Bondcliff at the moment of sunrise, beautiful! Relatively warm during the day. Pretty good trail conditions - lots of packed trail and firm snow on well-traveled trails. Evidence of drifted tracks on Twinway and Garfield ridge - a bit of route-finding there, but generally good trail conditions. First 20 miles were great, then tough going on the climb up Lafayette and the subsequent climbs. Struggled through last 1/3 but finished!!! Last few miles out on Osseo seemed to drag. Challenging day, but pleased to have been successful with this goal.
