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.
