I'm experienced, and a fast hiker. My gear is a bit limited though since I'll be living out of my backpack.

I realize future conditions are impossible to predict, but I'd at least like to get an idea what kind of snow year this is. Right now I'm planning on checking out the Alps in late June, then looping through Greece and Eastern Europe and back to the Alps in late July/August. I'm mostly interested in the classic tourist routes. I'd like try a few routes in June, but if conditions are poor I can come back later. I'm thinking about trying for a spot at the Gouter Hut and hoping to pick up a partner. If I can't, I was wondering if it would be reasonable to at least solo to the Gouter Hut? Would late June be a reasonable time to try an ascent in the high alps? I know how last year was...I'm experienced, and a fast hiker.
