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.


Start on the left of the face at the lowest point, to the right of the couloir of Darwin Col, and wander up the path of least resistance.


Standard small alpine rack, ice-axe (seasonal)
