Ascent Trip ReportOn 9/7/14, I hiked West Bond with buddy Ray for #47 on the NH 4,000 footers list. We also tagged Zealand Mountain and Mount Guyot along the way.
After tagging Guyot, Ray and I headed down the Bondcliff Trail to the West Bond spur, descending about 200 feet in doing so. Near the col between Guyot and Mount Bond, we passed the spur path to Guyot Campsite, but we were all set for water, so off to West Bond we went.
The West Bond spur descended gently to a low point, then it made a moderate then steep and scrambly ascent to the open summit of West Bond, which had excellent views, but unfortunately was swarmed with annoying bugs. We spent about a half hour on the summit, then we headed back down to the Zealand Rd. parking area, stopping at Zeacliff and Zealand Falls on the way.
