Climb McGillivray Slabs

Rate this Adventure Canada Mcgillivray Slabs Trailhead

Added by Rayne Grein

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.
