The "Nemesis Traverse" is marked by a hard start, followed by a fun traverse, and then a necky finish.

Sit start this problem on the far right side of the boulder/roof directly in front of the lot.

Figure out how you are going to master the start, then get into the fun traverse on mostly large hold.

As your endurance dwindles, begin to think about how you're going to turn the roof at the far left end. Mantel, thrutch, and claw your way over the roof at the end, and celebrate.


Large boulder with the low roof/ traversing arete directly in front of the lot.


Multiple pads help reduce the pucker effect.

The start is by far the hardest move. The topout is awkward, but I didn't find it intimidating.

Great problem. Using a high right heel above the starting hands and an unexpected intermediate right hand before bumping up to the horizontal pinch above helped me unlock the start. Lots of spectators glamour from the parking lot pathway.
