Never even considered trying this route in the summer due to slimey lichen cover, which would undoubtedly make mosquitoes even less enjoyable. Climbed it first time on a cold mid-October day and found it actually quite fun. Start on a dark face with two bolts, go up the arete, and surmount a tricky overhang (crux). Quintessential Red Wing dirt climb: for those who want it fun, do it early spring or late fall, for those who want hardcore swamp-like experience plough yourself into it on a hot and humid day in August.
