North Face of Darwin by Kris Gorny


Mostly, the route is 45 degree snow. At the top of the couloir it ramps up to a bit less than 50 degrees and in later season turns into ice.


The route follows the couloir between the northeast ridge and the rib east of the Darwin glacier.


Perhaps an ice tool is needed in late summer and fall.
