From North Lake, take the trail over the Lamarck Col to the head of Darwin Canyon. From here go up the Drawin Glacier to the narrowing portion at the top. Take the left-hand branch to the plateau. Walk across to the eastern edge of the plateau and climb down into the notch. Climb a crack on the west side of the pinnacle to the top.
