Dial and Nippletop

Hello all, I'm doing Dial and Nippletop this weekend and I see the weather is going to be a little chilly. Does anyone think I will need micro spikes for the peaks or any part of the route?

Thanks

It wouldn't hurt to carry them. You never know what you're going to get during shoulder season. I'm betting you won't need them, but.....

Kind of like chains in the backroads areas, if you carry them in the car and don't need them they don't take up much space, but if you are back in without them and it snows enough, boy will you wish you had them.

Thanks, no micros needed, was able to climb with a short sleeve tee and long pants. Shorts probably would have been fine too.

Bullet dodged. If the front that went through Minnesota and Wisconsin Friday and Saturday swung a little more south, you may have been knocking knees!
