Ascent Trip Report

Finished my NH 48 today! Tough hike, VERY hot and humid conditions, 90 degrees with no wind. The views were spectacular. I had company on Bondcliff and Mt. Bond, but I was fortunate to have the summit of West Bond all to myself to take in the views and bask in the completion of this list after seven years. I often wanted to turn back on this hike as it was very strenuous, long, and hot, but I feel accomplished now.
