Ascent Trip ReportThis was day five of a five day backpack to climb peaks in Evolution Valley. From Darwin Bench, Bob and I started hiking towards Mount Goethe around 7:00 a.m. We climbed up toward the lower lake located south of Mount Goethe, then continued around the lake’s northern shore and up towards the summit. The class 1 sand along the lower section of the peak and the class 2 talus fields along the upper section of the peak made the going somewhat tedious at times. Bob and I summated around 10:30 a.m. Afterwards, we backpacked out over Lamarck Col to North Lake. Trip stats are from Darwin Bench.
