A friendly boulder problem crux and nice climbing above make this a fun one. Almost always open.

P1- Boulder up the thin crack and head through some interesting climbing going straight up to the ledge. Climb straight up past a left-facing corner, then head right to the other left-facing corner. Follow this to the top until you're at the nice belay ledge.

P2- Tricky for tall folk. Step left and climb the obvious overhang. Head up past some loose stuff to the GT and a belay tree.

P3- Climb up the left facing corner formed by the massive jutting block. Work up the arete of the block, a little ways above your gear. Short but fun.

Alternate start for P1 at the next crack on the right. Same grade?


Just right of the Glyptodon corner at the first thin crack.


Standard rack to 2"

Combine pitch 1 and 2 for an awesome climb! Gear off the deck is tricky.

There is some discrepancy as to which crack actually is Nemesis, but both seem .10a and poorly protected.

Hmmmm... would have felt better with a bouldering pad. Once you figure out the beta it's not soooo bad but a fall in the first 10-15' would really suck. Once you're past the crux you get some way better holds to place gear from. I used the left crack and face holds and even got a wide stem over to the right crack. Fun climb.
