The first pitch of Jungle Warfare - one of the easiest climbs on the Squaw - gets in your face  from the start. Step into a vertical crack, which  gets bigger, wider, and takes you over a pumpy roof.

The next pitch starts with an awkward traverse left– I scooted and crawled across the start, but was finally forced to stand up in order to continue up the crack above.

My favorite pitch was 4 - a delightful thin finger layback (bring lots of small cams and wires), with occasional face holds that made it easier to place gear.  One more easy pitch led to the top, from which we scrambled down through the “cave” descent.
