the Chief as seen from Smoke Bluffs
This picture, taken from the side of Hwy. 99, a few hundred feet south of the main parking lot, shows most of the Chief's east facing walls.  This picture doesn't do the size of the formation justice. <br /> <br />From left to right: <br /> <br />At the far left of the photo you can just see the top of the Apron (six pitches up, to give you a sense of scale). <br /> <br />Then there's the University Wall and Grand Wall areas.  The Black Dyke is visible going through the big roofs.   <br /> <br />The Dihedrals area is the darker section in the middle. Up and right from the Dihedrals you can see the Tantalus wall. <br /> <br />Finally, the Bulletheads are on the far right.

Panoramic shot of the Chief from the top of the Malamute.  This view didn't exist until the top of Malamute was logged.  I'll post an annotated version soon.

One funny side-effect of where this photo was taken is that the row of trees in the foreground look like they're at the base of the formation, making it look very small. In reality, the row of trees is at the top of the Malamute and there's a few hundred foot drop down to the road and parking lot and then a fifteen minute hike up the base.
