Snow conditions on palisades

Hi, I am planning a trip to Mount Sill and Polemonium on August 5th. I am planning on the South Fork Big Pine Creek, camp just below lake Elinore, then up the saddle between Gayley and SIll, Swiss Arete, and traverse to Polemonium. Has anyone been in this area recently? What is the snowpack? I am debating bringing crampons or not.

Clyde Couloir / Starlight Buttress

Instead, one has to climb steep 5.7-5.8 rock from the toe of the buttress. The top of the couloir is also entirely dry.

What's up with the mosquitoes?

Are Sierra mosquitoes less aggressive in early season? If so, why??

Was up by Sawmill Pass this past weekend and encountered swarms of mosquitoes near all the water sources...but got away with only a bite or two. I was able to observe a couple of them land on my arm and then fly away...completely devoid of any of ...
