A range of mountains more loved by heli-skiers than climbers. There are plenty of glaciated peaks, but more often mountaineers get distracted by the Selkirks and Purcells. These are the mountains west of the Columbia River. The main peaks of the range, between Highway 1 and Highway 6 are known as the Gold Range.

There are at least two very well developed sport climbing areas on the sharp quartzite of the Monashee's eastern toes; Begbie Bluffs and Blanket Creek.

The map on the Columbia Mountains' introduction page shows where the Monashees are.
