Description 

Peak immediately northeast of Darwin Col and west of Blue Heaven Lake. approaching from this lake, the profile of this peak looks pretty impressive, approaching from Darwin Canyon, it looks utterly insignificant, and it's probably Class 1 from this direction. There's an almighty view of Mount Darwin from the top.

Getting There 

Sabrina Lake trailhead to Midnight Lake.

Four interesting pitches wander up this face, basically finding the path of least resistance, to the top of Peak 13048, where it becomes apparent that the descent to Darwin Col is just a short hike.The descent down the col however can either be a talus hike, or, in early season, and the case for us, 45 degrees of solid ice....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
