High Peaks Summit Conditions Oct/Nov 2013

Hello all! We are planning to play hooky this Friday so we can do some hiking in the High Peaks.

Can anyone report if there is snow or ice on the summits yet? I'll bring the micro spikes just in case, but just wondering. Mi wifey only has Yak Tracks so hopefully they will suffice.

We're a bit pressed for time, so the hike will have to be a shorter one. Maybe about 8-9 miles or less round trip. We've done lots of the "quickies" such as Cascade, Porter, Table Top, The Brothers, Big Slide, Noonmark, Hurricane, Pitchoff, etc. etc. Thinking of doing Phelps from the Loj, or maybe Stree/Nye (ugh). We've done about half of our 46, but want to keep on keepin on and at least knock one or two more off this fall.

Any suggestions?
An adventure in the mountains is truly the poor man's therapy...
