Description

Starting from the Kaslo Lake campground, skirt the lake on the east side on the well-marked trail. At a signpost, turn east towards Slocan Chief cabin (now a museum) for about 1.5 km. On reaching the cabin, take the signed trail to the "toe of the glacier" and proceed to climb. As the trail braids and fades in and out on the scree, keep to the east side of the creek and glacier "toe", west side of the large rock outcropping called the Battleship. There is no climbing involved if one approaches the summit from the top of the glacier but any other approach seems extremely steep and inaccessible.
