Name Notes: Named after Donald "Curly" Phillips, a well known guide in the Jasper area. Phillips was the guide who joined up with Reverend George Kinney in 1909 for the disputed first ascent of Mount Robson. In a sense, Phillips and Kinney are the Mallory and Irvine of the Canadian Rockies. Robson wasn't climbed for sure until 1913 by Conrad Kain.

Phillips led the Alpine Club expedition to Mount Robson in 1911, and again in 1913, and 1924. He was in the Tonquin region in 1926, and with Mary Jobe to Sir Alexander in 1927. He was killed by an avalanche in 1938 near Elysium Pass.
