Description 

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 Selkirks, across the Columbia River.

There is sport climbing in the foothills, south of Revelstoke. Not much has been reported in the way of technical routes, but there are some good ones to be put here. What might interest a MP reader is that the whole range is composed of the right stuff; granite and gneiss.

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