Invincible Lake lies below the west side of the mountain and it can be climbed from there as one of the routes. It is also traversed on a route from Indefatigable to Warspite.

Named in 1917 after the British Royal Navy Battlecruiser HSM Invincible which fought in both the Battle of the Falkland Islands and the Battle of Jutland in the 3rd Battle Cruiser Squadron. The ship was Rear Admiral Hood's flagship and in the first stage of the battle it landed some severe blows on German ships but was then sunk with the loss of 1026 men, including Hood. The area of Mount Warspite, Mount Invincible, and Mount Indefatigable is called Mount Robinson on George Dawson's 1886 map of the Rockies.
