Pinky Locks.

Access issues at the Lower Malamute. MORE INFO >>>


This obvious splitter crack is the first route you will encounter in the Chasing Rainbows area. It is straightforward jamming until it splits into two cracks and it becomes a jug haul. A little mossy. There isn't much reason to be down here unless you're climbing 10+, so I will throw in that you cannot get to the anchors of any other climbs from the top of this one.


Left of Coronary Corner. First climb encountered in Chasing Rainbows area.


Gear to 2". Two-bolt anchor with chains.

Good first gear lead if you like the approach.
