Nicole Deuchar has climbed an aesthetic new line on the Malamute she called Receiving Rainblows 5.11b.
It follows a technical dyke that snakes up the wall left of the classic 35-metre Chasing Rainbows 5.10d. Watch Deuchar on her send below.
Stu Smith spent about eight hours cleaning the dyke for Deuchar so she had a project to work while he continued work on his new and difficult crack.
“Receiving Rainbows finishes with a fun and sharp arête laybacking with polished feet,” said Smith.
The Malamute is a popular west-facing cliff that hides from from street-view and is across the street from the main parking area of The Chief.
About his hard project, Smith said, “Nearly there I can do it just need to summon the demon for the last move.” Watch Smith on his project below, clip to play.
