Description 

Perspective is yet another Nightmare classic.

Start in a pumpy overhanging corner and climb through a physical, cruxy bulge above. Continue up to an adequate rest a few meters below the technical crux which is just below a small triangular roof in a little flaring corner. Sustained and aesthetic.

It's possible to top-rope Claim Jumper from the shared anchors with Perspective. You can also reach the anchors of Sentry Box with an exposed traverse out left on a ledge system.


Location 

Nightmare rock is at Murrin park


Protection 

Double cams from fingers to hands....one #3 camalot is useful. Stoppers

Long, varied and stout! This one isn't likely on anyone's downgrade list. Highly recommended.

The best single pitch .11a in Squamish.

Amazing route, varied climbing and a full value pump. Those used to areas with tougher grades might call this .10+ ish, but it doesn't really matter as its one of the best pitches in the area...

I loved this climb. It's intimidating when you look at it, but it's all there. Super fun.

Wow. Just do it. Gear is bomber. Doubles to #2 and one #3 would be fine. Might want to throw in an extra purple camalot to sew it up.

Wow! Got the onsight of this one yesterday with a lot of effort. Amazing pitch that throws everything from fingers to fists and jugs to slopers at you. Perfect rests when you need them.

Brilliant pitch!

an excellent pitch, but i wouldn't put it in the squamish top 100 due to several sections with not-so-great rock. definitely a memorable pitch.
