I just returned from Wheeler, summitted on 10/8. I will be posting a complete trip report. My climbing partners will be as well. They have a website at highpointing.com
Let me know if you can't find it & I will send you the link. There was a storm two days before we got there. The last couple of pushes had about a foot to a foot and half of snow in the drifts. Everyone in our party felt you would need ice ax, crampons, etc. in a few weeks. Strap-on crampons would have been nice at the end. Some members of the party kicked in some steps. Hope this helps, let me know if you need more info.
