You mean Unclimbables. Squamish has some nice rock, but I am not qualified to answer this question.

You might also look at Mt. Slesee. Very much a classic climb on the North face and ridge.

Depending on conditions in the high mountains,

NE Chimney Direct, Mt. Waddington

NE Ridge Bugaboo Spire

N. Ridge Mt. Assiniboine

Japanese Route Mt. Alberta

Brewer's Buttress Castle Mountain

Still on my list:

NE Buttress Mt. Slesse

Grassi Ridge, Wiwaxy Peak

Krause-McCarthy Snowpatch Spire

W. Buttress S. Howser Tower

Grand Sentinel, Valley of the 10 Peaks

Lotus Flower Tower, SE Face

NW Arete Mt. Sir Donald

E. Ridge Mt. Logan (actually more of an alpine climb)

Greenwood-Locke Mt. Temple (more of an alpine climb)

Wishbone Arete Mt. Robson (again, more alpine)

Best actual strategy for us in the past has been to go into the area with a passel of objectives, and go for the one that is in gift conditions.
