Multipitch wall with many great lines on it. The top gives you some great views of the Chief. Definitely worth checking out if you will be in Squamish for a while.
The Papoose is about a half mile to a mile south of the Chief camping area. Park at Shannon Falls. Walk down the road about 100 yards, and then dive down a short hill towards the wall.
McLane's book shows a walk-off to the south. As Andy notes, the walk-off to the north is straightforward and works well. Follow the cliff edge north until the trail becomes obvious. Some routes can be rapped, but unless noted in the route description, don't assume you can get down with a single 70m.

First pitch is a very interesting traversing 5.8 crack, and a wave like rock. Second pitch is the crux. It is a beautiful thin hands/finder crack and goes at 10a. From there you get a couple 5.9 pitches, and then it eases off....[more] Browse More Classics in International
