A remote peak located west of Snowcap Lake in Garibaldi Provincial Park. A multi-day expedition is required to reach the summit. Access is via logging road that run up the west side of the Lillooet River, between Tuwasus and Snowcap creeks. Head south along the ridge west of Glacier Lake and then traverse west across the Icemantle Glacier. Drop west to Tuwasus Pass and then follow Roller Coaster Ridge to its summit.
Name Notes: Rumour has it that a lucrative gold find is (was) located somewhere near its western slope. Supposedly BC Parks said that a small bulldozer and mining equipment was found abandoned in a box canyon a few years back. Mount Pitt takes its name from the Pitt River, which was named by James McMillan who was the founder of Fort Langley (1827). The river's namesake was William Pitt the Younger (1739-1806), British Prime Minister during the Napoleonic Wars (adapted from the Akrigg's British Columbia Place Names).
