Scramble the Tower of Babel

Rate this Adventure Canada Tower of Babel Parking Area

Added by Nathan Gutzmann

For a very rewarding, alternate view of one of Canada's most photographed lakes scramble the Tower of Babel. Additionally get a great view of Consolation Lakes.

Starting at the Moraine Lake parking lot follow the trail East along behind the large pile of boulders along the lake shore. Once you reach the foot of the Tower of Babel scramble up the slope to heading towards the valley between the two peaks. The easiest route is along one of the cliff faces which can be used for extra traction on the loose scree. Once on top you'll have a 360 degree view of the entire area! Be careful not to shower others with scree as you ascend the slope.
