Subject: Question to Mohammed on Bonds please...

Hi Mohammed,

I frequently refer to your web-site for my hikes, which I think is a great web-site!!! The following is from the Bonds section.

>First go from Zealand Road to Guyot campsite, over Zeacliff and Zealand (ow: 7.5 miles, 2,850 feet, 5:10), and set up camp.
How did you come up with this number 2850' please? The Zealand Road is at 2000' and the Mt.Guyot is at 4580'. From Guyot summit it is like -500feet loss to the campsite. I am just guessing that the number should be like ~2600 feet? (4580-2000=~2600)

>For an overnight do the Bonds (4.8 miles, 1,400 feet, 3:05)
Here also 1400feet is confusing to me? From camp to westBond it is +500', to Bond it is +350', and from Bond to Bondcliff and back it is like +1000'. I am counting only elevation gains. So here the number should be like +1850' (500+350+1000=1850)

I have one other question? Please. In the WMG-27th edition, for hikes the elevation gains are given, also in some places (rev. 300ft), is given. Does this mean elevation loss only of 300feet. OR is it elevation loss and again gain of 300 feet?
