Petlushkwohap Mountain- East Side
Located in the Cantilever range, on the divide between the Stein river and Kwoiek creek. Petlush is the second highest peak in "Southwestern BC" (as defined by the old Culbert Guide). The highest peak is Skihist, 5 km southwest of Petlush. Although its full name is Petlushkwohap Mountain, it is often referred to simply as "Petlush" mountain. The full pronunciation is more or less the way it is spelled: "Pet-lush-k-whop".

Although the final climb of the south ridge from the Winter-Petlush col is straightforward, the real challenge is to reach that col. An examination of the maps reveals that any approach from the north would be a very difficult climb for thousands of feet through steep forest and ravines. And an approach from the west would have to start from the Lillooet River at some place like Lizzie Lake, which would be a huge wilderness traverse. Therefore the main approaches to the Cantilever Range have always been from the Fraser Canyon in the east, either from Kwoiek Creek, or from the Stein River.
