Here are more accurate coordinates for McGregor. The first one is the summit; the second, I believe, the slab.

40.41364N, 105.57697W
40.40975N, 105.58485W

Corresponding topozone URL's:

(The topozone link now listed put's McGregor just outside of Lyons ... the coordinates put it in China.)

Thanks for the page - I couldn't recall what one of the photos in the windows of Neptune Mountaineering showed the last few times I was down at the Southern Sun. Mystery solved.

AHAHAHAHA. Will fix it now. Thanks.

Well, I tried to fix it but I'm still in China. I input W on the longitude and it keeps reverting back to E. Any suggestions?

Re: CHINA!!!

You have to enter a negative longitude for the western emisphere; W or E are ignored.

Estes Park, China

That worked. Thank you both. :-)

Dark Mountain???

I don't understand why you think that Dark Mountain would be the "parent mountain" ??? Dark Mountain is on the north side of the Black Canyon Drainage with over a thousand feet of elevation loss/gain and three quarters of a mile separating it from MacGregor Mountain.
I think the Rocky Mountain National Park Page would be an appropriate parent.

Re: Dark Mountain???

Thanks. I think it might work for Gerry's purposes, but on SP, "Parent" has a different meaning. I think people might be confused by the reference to Dark Mountain, especially since Dark Mountain doesn't have a page on SP, yet. Dark Mtn.doesn't get climbed very often. I know several people who hike in The Park a lot, and none of them have done Dark Mtn. I've done it a couple of times, but wouldn't recommend it unless you're trying to do all the named summits in The Park.
I guess I'd just recommend deleting the reference to Dark Mountain.

Re: Dark Mountain???

Good point Jim. Yeah, giving the reference to "Parent" on SP, it doesn't fit. I will delete the reference. Thanks for the input.
