After a rough (but beautiful) four wheel drive trail through a canyon full of historic mining ruins this easy climb of the peak named after the colorful desert character Seldom Seen Slim offers excellent views of the Panamint, Slate and Sierra Nevada ranges. To Parking Spot: From Highway 178 heading North to Death Valley take a right at Ballarat Road and continue straight on through the town of Ballarat and up into Pleasant Canyon. Turn right where the road forks at waypoint SLRT01 and head up past the World Beater mine and to the saddle. The parking area is at the saddle. From where you park, walk across the road and start your climb up the ridge on the other side.
