Fun climb on good rock! This is a great quick multi pitch for after work climbing!
- Morningside Route
- Located on the North side of Mount McGillivray
- 5.7 Sport Route- 4 Pitches
- Walk off or Rappel
Getting there: Located across from Lac Des Arc. Theres a small gravel road turn off just before McGillivray Ponds- easy to miss! Then follow a small trail on the right side that leads up to Kahl Crack near the far west end. The trail climbs steeply up through trees and leads to a series of old gravel roads that zigzags up to a tunnel at the base of the cliff.
This was my second time climbing Morningside- has a very easy quick approach. The bolts are a little run out. Theres a variety of rock which makes the climb a little more interesting- from high friction slab to ledges.
The guidebook says to rappel with 2 ropes- however, we used one 70 and made it to the bottom fine.

I'm probably not qualified to give a thorough description of this route having only done it once, but with the guidebook out of print there isn't a ton of information out there.

The trailhead to Fang Mountain is just after the 41km mark on Pass Lake Road off on an old logging road to the south (Note: There is no sign for the trailhead).
