+1 debmonster, def bring spikes, and also Plan Ahead And Prepare - set up some predetermined check-in/bail-out points, if things get weird, or weathery, or both. Stop and take inventory as a group, and make the call.

The view from Indian Falls is nice and might have to suffice, as are the two 'trailless' peaks on the way up. The larger the group, the slower the travel, so plan that in as well, and you'll always have a turtle at the rear.

If you wake up Saturday morning and its snowing or raining, I'd consider something else. Lake Colden in the snow is beautiful, although Avalanche Pass might be crappy in the snow.

Of course you're probably equally likely to get 60 degrees and pure blue skies, so you might have an epic day.
