At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

- Access Issues: inherited from Squamish

As of June, 2008 this peak was renamed Slhanay (pronounced Slarnay) as "The Squaw" was considered a derogatory racist and sexist term.
