Taseko Mountain from the East
Taseko Mountain, just East of Taseko Lakes, is the ruling summit of the entire South Chilcotin Area. Because of its distance from any road it is seldom visited. Its commanding height is not readily apparent, and often the only clue of its true height is a dusting of white when all peaks surrounding it are brown. It is only when you go west of the Taseko River and begin to get into the Chilko Lake area that you begin to run into higher peaks, the most similar being Mt Tatlow.

1. Access via Taseko Lake Road From Taseko Lake, check road bulletins and drive south as far as possible. No bridges, so creeks like Beece creek must be forded with vehicle. If possible drive as far as spur at Red Mountain, then hike up onto ridge and then final summit via west ridge.
2. Access via Chita Creek A multiday hike from Relay Creek over Powell Pass, and finally Chita Creek. Then north up to the final west ridge of the peak.
3. West Ridge Reach broad upper ridge at 2700m either from North of south, then ramble to final summit. The final summit looks intimidating, but is actually just a walk with occasional use of hands.
