Nightmare Tower Rock Climbing
Nightmare Tower, Big Bear South
This oddly-shaped formation is split by a variety of cracks and offers a half dozen routes on it's eastern and western facess. Brownies and Beer
(5.9) and Tri-tip and Corn (5.10a) are some of the better options here.
Approach from Hwy 18 near the Alpine Slide by turning onto either Mill Creek Road or Tulip Lane. Drive 3 miles from the intersection of Mill Creek Road and Tulip Lane along Mill Creek Road (2N10) where the formation will come into view on the right (north) side of the road.
Approach as for Sleepy Bear Tower
but skirt that formation on the left side of the west face and head slightly up and right through some rocks and Manzanita bushes.
