We derive a rigorous expression for the mean first-passage time of an overdamped particle subject to a constant bias in a force field with quenched disorder. Depending on the statistics of the disorder, the disorder-averaged mean first-passage time can undergo a transition from an infinite value for small bias to a finite value for large bias.
