Black Dyke



We don't have a topo so we have to be a little inventive when it comes to choosing our routes. The most obvious line on the Chief is a route called "Black Dyke" (12 pitches), basically it's a black dyke of basalt rock running all the way up the granite rock face. Pretty practical when it comes to route finding: just follow the black line of rock which leads you to the top. 2 crux roof pitches, a battle of jungly slopers, and chicken wing dyno into slot, very different climbing than the usual granite climbing in Squamish. 
Check out the black dyke all the way to the ground on the first picture.
