Description

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.

Getting There

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.

Either park in the parking lot (and pay) or, at least during the current state of construction, the paved should directly in front of NR is wide to allow parking directly in front of the cliff.

A trail leaves the road near the south end of the cliff and takes less than five minutes.

Don't be fooled...only the bottom half of 2 or 3 routes stay dry in the rain, not the quality stuff up high! Jun 9, 2008

Nightmare is arguably the best single crag for hard cracks in Squamish. Perspective, Sentry Box, Claim Jumper, Hypertension and Big Daddy are but a few.... Nov 28, 2007
