An east facing cliff close to the road (somewhat noisy) that has a good selection of routes 5.10 and above. Bonus: many of the pitches will stay dry through the first phases of a Squamish rain siege.
Nightmare is on the west side of the road, about 400 meters north of the Murrin parking lot; its large roofs are visible from the road.

A beguiling, I-think-I-can-do-that offwidth that seems to prove most people wrong.Start w/ 5.9 hands to fist. Then a one move transitional pod, and finally about 12' of overhanging, leaning perfect 4.5 Camalot. Ends with a couple of easy moves and chains.
