1 Via Temple Basin 2
0
Phipps Pk can be climbed by following the Main Divide from Arthur's Pass, but it is usual to gain the ridge from Temple Basin by the col west of the summit (and just east of Pt 1728). 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 steep snow slopes and rock gullies on the southern flank.

2 From Pegleg Creek 1
0
The crux of this climb is reaching the headwaters of Pegleg Creek. It’s ugly and it’s a bash! If in doubt follow a deer trail. Once at the head of the creek, climb to the col north of the peak.
From Deception River 1
0
Climb onto the ridge opposite Good Luck Creek, reaching Pt 1820 north of Phipps Pk. (This is a bit of a bash!)
