Yak Peak is a granite summit located adjacent the Coquihalla Highway in British Columbia north of Hope. The mountain lies less than one km from a highway rest area, and is easily visible from a long stretch of the highway just south of the summit and tollbooths. It is known for some fine granite rock climbing routes, notably Yak Crack. Other mountains in the same group, usually known as the Anderson River Group or as the Coquihalla Range, are named after other similar animals, such as Guanaco Peak.
