Thanks to Mark Toronto for adding this peak.

An arrowhead peak, set halfway between Whistler and Blackcomb ski areas. Access from the south side to a knife ridge to the top. Requires a lot of snow to ski the best routes from the summit.The northern aspects offer the steepest and deepest decents. No fall skiing. Return over Cowboy Ridge and via Singing Pass to Whistler Mtn. 18 Miles/27 Kilomiters +/-

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Fissile in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.
