The Squaw has a selection of excellent climbs, which, combined with its reletive seclusion and shady aspect, make this a great place to go on hot summer days. All climbs on the Squaw are fairly difficult, with nothing below the 10a rating. Great views of the town and of the North Gully of the Chief can be had from the wall, and much of the leftern reaches have yet to be explored.
Take the forest service road about 1.5km past the Apron parking area to a small pull-out on the right. The approach trail is typically overgrown and tropical (like most at Squamish) but fairly straitforward.

The guidebook calls it, "A magnificant squeeze chimney in a majestic curving dihedral." Climb Birds of Prey onto the slim ramp, and belay. Continue up the steepening ramp, and belay in the offwidth. Then the follow the beautiful sweeping "pipeline" off-width pitch for about 170 ft to the top. This is no a squeeze chimney, I am small and did not fit in it. If you have larger feet you will get heel toe jams. ...[more] Browse More Classics in International
