Please bring appropriate gear! Though only Nocrmber it is way too cold for folks to be out there in shorts or jeans! If worst case happened and you're stuck on the mountain for a period of time,things could go from bad to worse really quickly.
There was more snow & ice than we expected bc so many other trail reports indicated no snow, but it was there! Definitely pack microspikes--better to gave them than to wish you did.
