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.


Nightmare rock is at Murrin park


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

Wicked good, non-stop type 1 fun. Probably not a single real 5.11 move but quite sustained and steep so the grade seems justified. Gear is great, bring doubles of everything. I found the rock quality to be superb throughout. Aug 21, 2015

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. Aug 5, 2013

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! Sep 10, 2012

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. Aug 8, 2010

I loved this climb. It's intimidating when you look at it, but it's all there. Super fun. Jul 28, 2010

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... Jul 19, 2010
The best single pitch .11a in Squamish. Jun 28, 2010

Long, varied and stout! This one isn't likely on anyone's downgrade list. Highly recommended. Aug 4, 2009
