If some locals would be kind enough, could you please post info/names of your favorite multi-pitch trad routes in squamish in the 5.7 - 5.9+ range. I'd also be willing to do a 10 as long as it isn't sustained climbing.

Hairpin on the Papoose! Although I have never done the original 4th pitch (and 4th class looking), instead opting for the direct .10+ slab.
It's a great climb with one very short cruxy section of maybe .9+ MAX.

A few of my picks:
Birds of Prey
Angel's Crest (rated at mid-10, but mostly easier. The cruxes are not too bad.)
Diedre (worth doing once, but the traffic sucks)
Upper Black Dyke (I honestly don't think very much of it is actually 5.10:positive holds everywhere.)

Stefanie's Tears @ the Malmute 2 pitches, great position, fun climbing. 5.9, 5.8.
In the bluffs do Old Age, Jabberwocky, Wonderland link up since someone is definitely TR'ing Mosquito right now. Check out that newly developed cliff @ shannon falls discussed recently on the site AMO wall? I think. Cool moderates anyway. Papoose is a great choice too, if you do hairpin make sure to go do Mushroom as well 5.9.
Jungle warfare on the Squaw has some good situations as well with 1 10a move off the ground.

Snake 5.9 on the apron is a must do especially if you combine it with dessert dyke 10 - and Memorial Crack. I liked the first 4 pitches of Europa - the last four aren't worth doing. It is super sandbagged though at 5.8. I would say the second pitch could almost be 10a. Another good connection in the bluffs would be old age 9 - to Sparky's Crack 8 to sparky goes to wonderland 10 b. Or do Jabberwoky and wonderland after Old Age.
