Description

A novelty climb, Chasing Rainbows climbs a basalt dike that continues underneath Highway 99 to form the Black Dike all the way up the Chief! After locating the dike, you will have to climb some granite to get there, placing gear along the way. Most of the dike is steep with big holds, with a techy move thrown in there. The angle lessens at the top, and protection opportunities decrease as well, a fall up here would be heinous, but unlikely. When you top out, look for anchors on a slab to the left.

Location

From HWY 99 footbridge, head North (Right) on several trails in the forest until you reach the slabs on top of the Malamute, you should see a pond near the logging business here. Drop down the slabs in a gully, and then head left around the base. Keep an eye out for the dike, it starts on a steep hillside.

Protection

Single rack to #3 Camelot, make sure you have a .75 & .5 for the dike portion. Slings!
