Conditions can vary from day to day and hour to hour, but without crampons I'd avoid any of the open rocky topped summits like Wright or Algonquin. You may hit a day when microspikes would be fine for the ascent but an hour later they're just not quite grippy enough for the descent.

That being said - for one of the High Peaks, I'd suggest Cascade, Lower Wolf Jaw from the AMR, or Phelps.

Have you considered car camping at one of the Heart Lake lean-to's ? You could bring most everything but the kitchen sink...
