Via Temple Basin
Grade 0
can be Climbed by following the Main Divide from the Pass, but it is usual to gain the ridge from Temple Basin by the col west of the summit. The gendarme on the ridge below the summit is turned on the Westland side up a small gully. This can be difficult in new snow conditions. Face climbs are also available on impressive, tall slabs on the Temple Basin side, or via the steep snow slopes and rock gullies on its southern flank.
From Pegleg Ck Head
Grade 0
Reached from the head of Pegleg Creek by the col north of the peak. The crux in this climb is actually getting to the creek’s headwater it’s ugly and it’s a bash! If in doubt follow a deer trail.
From Deception River
Grade 0
the ridge opposite Goodluck Creek, reaching the knoll north of PHIPPS PK (This is a bit of a bash!)
