Ascent Trip Report

desolation shelter to shoal pond tr
to ethan pond tr --- 4.6 miles
took zeacliff trail up to twinway tr --- 1.25 miles
twinway to zealand mtn --- 1.6
at the spur we dropped our packs for the 0.1 trip to the wooded zealand mtn --- 0.2

zeacliff trail turned out to be a mistake... we were done-in from the steep climbing with heavy packs, plus the clouds were settling in quickly and the partly cloudy day was turning towards deep dark clouds and threatening rain... it was also getting colder - so a decision hard to me made...
we made a wise choice to head for guyot shelter and not galehead hut

bondcliff trail --- 1.30
guyot shelter --- 0.60
