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.

In the past the FFA was attributed to later climbers but an eyewitness account shows that Les McDonald freed it c. 1964!!! Crazy!

Location

Nightmare rock is at Murrin park

Protection

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