Winter Twins/Bonds Backpack with Overnight at Guyot Tentsite

Trip dates: Saturday, January 19, 2019 12:00 AM to Sunday, January 20, 2019 12:00 AM

Join us for an exhilarating winter backpack traverse of the Twins & Bonds! We'll get an early start on Saturday morning. After spotting cars, we'll hike over the Twins and continue on to Guyot tent site. Weather permitting, we'll do a quick out and back to enjoy a spectacular sunset on West Bond. We'll hike a total of 11-12 miles with over 3500 ft of elevation on this challenging day. On Saturday night, if the shelter is available, we will not need to set up tents. On Sunday, we will traverse Mt. Bond and Bondcliff, including a section of exposed trail above treeline. Continuing out, we will hike a total of 11 miles on Sunday, mostly downhill. This trip is for intermediate/advanced hikers with experience backpacking and winter hiking.
