Participant Information

Phair Peak is a beautiful mountain located Northwest of the well known Duffey Lake. I fell in love with this mountain when staring at it from atop Slumber Peak, which is directly North of Phair.

What I saw, was a beautiful gulley that bisects the North ridge of Phair. It doesn't look easy, but damn was it tempting. I am unsure of the difficulty for this trip truly. We may want to bring rope to protect the ridge as we climb. In addition to the couloir route, there is also a viable route which cuts up the Phair-Molybdenite col. The approach to the col could be made from either the Southeast or Northwest; there are FSRs on each side. 

As you may have gathered, I am still debating which route to take. I will do more research, and decide closer to the trip date. I would like to thank Alastair Ferries for bringing this mountain to my attention. If it wasn't for his Slumber Peak trip, I wouldn't even know that Phair existed.

We will car camp nearby the peak on Friday May 23rd.
