Mount Charleston in March - Conditions? Gear?

I'm heading to Vegas the end of March, and would like to hike Mount Charleston. Based on the reading I've done, I expect snow cover, but was hoping for some local insight if available. I've hiked snow-covered 14ers previously with microspikes - can I expect the snow conditions to be firm enough for microspikes, or should I come with snowshoes?

FOUND - Camera on Latir Peak, New Mexico

I found a nice camera/case on Latir Peak yesterday, 27 Aug 2017. I know from a summit log there was a group on a nearby mountain the day before so its likely someone from that group also was on Latir Peak. To claim your camera contact Fred: fredbrown585@gmail.com or text: 908-675-2295. Provide specifics on the camera and case to claim.

Old AZ Rock Climbing Guide

I found this guidebook at a used book store. It's a 1989 guidebook for Sedona and Oak Creek canyon. Has anyone heard of it or seen it before?

Doing Humphreys and Wheeler (NM) late April-early March

I need suggestions for what route I should take on each. I'm not trying to camp on the mountain for I will be with somebody, just not on the mountain. I just want to know which route will be available for that time and take no more than a day.
