3 out of 5 stars Climbed it in a snowstorm

Spent 4 days in the Mulvey Basin in August - snowed or rained every day. We managed to get up the south ridge of Asgard between storms. Lots of lichen on the rock, which gets slippery as hell when wet. Also soloed Midgard. After 4 days, we bailed and went to Skaha to find some sun.
