There is likely to be plenty of snow, but the weather is forecasted to be very nice (sorry, no guarantee!). Be sure to bring ice ax, helmet, and webbing harness/'biner/cord. Traction devices (crampons, MicroSpikes) might be helpful, which could take the trip to a T-4. {I do not recommend instep crampons}. If conditions and party strength are all positive, we may attempt Sperry as well, which is very close. I'll have more on the route - including driving directions - later.
