The Massif!

The Little McGregor Massifs are a large group of mostly (unfortunately) shorter crags scattered throughout the Little McGregor Lake area, about 40 minutes west of Kalispell and just north of McGregor Lake.

While most of the walls are not particularly tall, this rock is the same quartzite found at Stone Hill near Eureka, meaning good trad. protection, excellent crimping on the sport routes, and generally solid rock.

If you're already driving west to the Kila Crags from Kalispell it's only 20 minutes further down the road (or a quick detour if you're driving US 2 east from Libby) and worth a visit.

As of June 2020, eight routes are completed with several more coming in the future!


Other notes: The campground parking lot has a pit toilet. Swimming in Little McGregor is nice. There's even a spot where you can water solo if that's your kinda thing. McGregor Lake Lodge has cheap beer. Etc., etc. 

Getting There

On Highway 2, east or west, follow the sign for the Little McGregor Lake forest service campground/fishing access parking lot (the driveway is a few hundred feet east and across the highway from McGregor Lake Lodge). Drive up the paved-then-dirt road about a quarter-mile (stay straight at the three forks) and park near the pit toilet in the parking lot. Behind Camp Spot 77 there is a blocked (bouldered) logging road — follow this obvious road to the crags.
