Mount McKay Climbing Notes

Mark Boucher from CANADA writes:

I have climbed several different sides of Mt McKay. People can climb straight up the middle of the side facing Thunder Bay starting from the bottom. You can also go up the left side which is on Mission Rd. You can go east from the top of the old Mt McKay Ski Hill Side, there is a trail that will bring you to a tunnel that goes straight through the mountain to the top. The entrance is near the top when climbing up. There is a trail that will take you up either the front or the back of the mountain. I like climbing up above the pow wow grounds.
