Stawamus Squaw from above
The Stawamus Squaw, a sister peak to the Stawamus Chief, is located 2.3 km to the northeast. Although its summit is unimpressive, the peak features some difficult technical rock routes along its northwest and north faces. It can be reached by taking a right fork on the trail goes along the backside of The Chief.

Name Notes: Climbers have long called this massif "The Squaw." The word "Squaw" has been officially eliminated from all place names in British Columbia. In 2009, the name Slhanay was proposed; this is the name of the massif in the Sḵwx̱wu7mesh language. Neither name is official.
