McGregor Slab is a large dome high above US Hwy. 34 as it leads out of Estes Park towards the north (Fall River Road) entrance to RMNP....it is at the RMNP village campground and lodge, just look north and up slope and you cannot miss this large, 700 foot dome with numerous dihedrals running up towards the summit. Many easy to moderate climbs of 5 and 6 pitches lead to the impressive summit...rock quality is good and the climbing is less than vertical but fun and routes are long. It is popular due to the easy/moderate routes available but still much less popular than Lumpy Ridge climbs. The elevation of the parking area is 8200 ft.
Park at the village lodge parking lot and cross street and hike through campground and follow obvious path that leads uphill for 30 minutes to the base of the crag. The trail starts just right of two grey structures.

Although treated rather dismissively by most guide books, this is one of the better easy routes to be found out there. It is relatively long,(3-4 pitches), nicely exposed and has a fine position high above the Fall River Valley. As for most McGregor routes, the endless options for variation have caused confusion in identifying the designated path. Yet, the left side of the slab has some more well defined features that set it apart. I suppose this could be done in 2 60m pitches, but for conve...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
