From Temple Col but not generally directly. Either climb the orange rock ramp some 200 metres off the col back towards the ski area to join the South Ridge. Alternatively cross the col and traverse the scree/snow slopes under the South Ridge then climb a ramp that rejoins the ridge to the summit.

Several gullies break through the West Face of the mountain to gain the summit. These are generally used as loose scree descents in summer and good icy ascents in winter. Beware of the lower bluffs.

Ascend PHIPPS PEAK. The joining ridge with MT TEMPLE is relatively straightforward and well protected to the first notch in the ridge. From here climbers should stay on the ridge back in preference to climbing low around obstacles. The ridge narrows into several slabby pinnacles (beware slab avalanche) that must be protected climbs. On reaching the scree saddle it is an easy ascent onto MT TEMPLE. Descend to Temple Basin ski field.
