When you go this high ED resetting the prop pitch is best. If you are going to 18K then getting 5500 rpm WOT is still important. No matter what climb will be slow at best.

In the early years I would reset twice / year.  I always optimized for best speed at a high (above 10,000) altitude.  To change for a single flight doesn't make sense to me in fact now I use a single setting year round.  Without the summertime adjustment I give up 3-4 knots.

My best speeds ever during the year are 127kts TAS and worst speeds are 119kts TAS.
