Just talked with my son. He and two of his friends are at the top of Ebbetts Pass. They left Yosemite Valley on 6/14/11. He said that snow is 5 to 8 feet deep everywhere, and water crossing are a challenge.

They are pushing on and plan to be in Echo Lake around Noon on 6/23/11. There is a hiker ahead of them that they plan to catch today, and i think he said there was a group further ahead. I might have got that wrong. Cell reception wasn’t that great.
