Paul attempting Nightmare. Holds are TINY!


Steep slab with slopey hands and feet. All the beta i can really give is 'balance well'.

Nightmare is located just left of the obvious finger crack, Dinkum (5.9) on the south face of Buck's Bar Dome.


The only way to protect this nightmare is via toprope. From the top of Buck's Bar Dome, employ the right-most anchors.
