Please note that there is Phillips Peak in southeastern BC near the Elk Valley, Phillipps Peak near Crowsnest Pass, and Mount Phillips near Mount Robson.

Ted Moser reports that, "It's a huge, awesome mountain, with a high cirque lake and a ribbon falls plunging down a cliff from it. Best of all, the west face of the mountain that displays all this takes some heavy bushwhacking to reach, so when you get there you know you're one of a relatively few people who have seen it.

Thanks Ted.
