    Lower-leg injury on Phelps (I can imagine where he got hurt). Lost hikers w/o map&compass.

    Me and my crew saw this guy butt sliding down the Phelps trail as we ascended and again when we descended the trail. It was very slow going for this dude. Oddly, he only had one foot with a microspike on. In fact most people were wearing mico's...I was glad to have full crampons on!

      Having hiked Phelps in icy conditions I can't even imagine butt sliding on it.....that's my take.

        When I did Phelps a couple of weeks ago, I saw someone with yak traks on. In fact, this winter, I saw a number of people with yaktraks (or stabilizers). Good luck with that!

          There is enough vegetation on the ADK peaks to get up them wearing pretty much anything on your feet. It all depends how much tree pulling you wish to do.
