I'm starting my hike on March 27 from Campo and have a desire to bag 
Taquitz Peak (via the Devils Slide Trail), San Jaciento and San 
Gorgonio, IF, that is, the weather and snow levels permit it.

I know to answers to what I'm about to ask have a lot of "it depends..." 
answers, but I'll ask anyways:

Have any of you PCT regulars bagged these peaks in early April? Assuming 
there isn't heavy snowfall after mid March, will the trails to the peaks 
be passable?  Will micro-spikes be sufficient to climb these or will 
crampons/ice axe be required?

Same questions for Baldy and Baden-Powel later in the month?
