Map Detail Map Parking Map Climbing Route Etymology

The shortest approach to Mt. Darwin is via Lake Sabrina, although the routes on the east face are more difficult than the easier (but tougher approach) Darwin Glacier and West Ridge. The approach to Darwin Glacier starts at North Lake, goes through Lamark Col, and requires much cross-country and boulder hiking. There is significant loss of elevation on the west side of the col before one can begin to climb the glacier.

Camping is available at Lake Sabrina.

6a start at the trailhead.
