I’m heading for Hungry Packer Lake this weekend and was wondering if there is a passage, maybe via Mt Haekel to get over the other side into Evolution Valley. My goal is to climb over the COL and try to drop down onto Wanda Lake (I’m carrying a full pack), never being in this area, so not sure what to expect.
Any tips/feedback is greatly appreciated!
Javier, I’ve gone over Lamarck Col down to Darwin Basin, and that was a slow, tough slog. Do-able, but not something I look forward to repeating anytime soon.
I can’t comment on Hungry Packer Lake, unfortunately, but when I was looking for “shortcuts” to Evolution Valley, Lamarck Col was considered one of the “easier” options.
Appreciate the feedback, my plan (somewhat modified) is to explore w/o my full backpack and will decide on going over the following day, I’ll provide feedback when I get back.
