Climbed Phelps today after meeting up with another hiker at the Phelps Trail turnoff. I had been following his tracks until then. Loj to Marcy Dam was soft on way out but well packed on way back. From the dam up to the top of Phelps we were the only two all day. No breaking has been done on the Van Ho further than the turn for Phelps. The snow is Deep! I hiked for 9 hours today the guy I met up with, for 10! I hiked in MSR Evo style snowshoes because my Lightnings with tails have a broken binding. The guy I hiked with had bigger snowshoes... it made a huge difference! He didn't sink nearly as far as I did.
