Squeezebox is the prominent chimney on the Beanstalk wall. The chimney was formed by a vein of weaker blocky basalt which forms the back of the chimney. Climb the chimney, finding gear in the granite along the way until you reach the flat chockstone that used to form the base of the 'box'. Step up on this and get gear (1/2 to 1") in the crack on climber's left or large gear in the offwidth on the right at first. Layback and bearhug your way up with good jams on the right side of the blocks to the two-bolt ring anchor. The second pitch is still an adventure and not as easily protected as the first.
**(retained for historical purposes, description previous to October 2020: Climb the chimney until you can see through the 'box' to the upper section. You may want to pass the rack through ahead of you so you don't get jammed! Squeeze through the box and continue to the top via more chimney, crack, and some bear hugging moves on the final block.)
