Definitely not normal, but very strange you're only feeling it going uphill. Something like that should be noticeable regarldless of the grade of the road (speed may make it more or less apparent). Are you sure it's not the road surface? What happens when you go up a similar grade elsewhere, or take 120 up to the top instead of Priest Grade (I'm in the right location, correct?)? You can check the rear wheel for excessive side-to-side play. PUt the bike on the centerstand and try to moce the rear wheel side to side gripping ort from the back. if it's moving around something is not right.

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!
