Description 

Mount McRae sits in the northern end of the mountain system of mafic sills, known as Nor'Wester Mountains. Extending south of Thunder Bay, Nor'Wester Mountains define the landscape immediately after crossing to Canada and driving along Provincial Route 61. Mount McRae's northern neighbor, Mount McKay, the tallest of these mountains, looms over Thunder Bay and is the city's defining landmark.

Getting There 

After crossing into Canada, drive ~30 miles north on Provincial Route 61 and turn right onto Mountain Road (sign). Continue for about 2 miles, turn right onto Feaver Rd and drive to its end with a small paved parking lot at the trailhead.

Like the other routes on McRae, Nanibijou hasn't been forming every year, so get it when you can! P1, WI4: Climb thin, variable ice for about 40' to a short vertical step through a rock band, and hopefully thicker ice. Continue up steep ice to a bolted station on the right. DO NOT continue higher and belay from the alcove, as you will get pounded by ice coming off P2.P2, WI5: Move up and right from the belay and climb a variety of ice features, sometime...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
