This is a top rope problem that ascends the northeast face of the Nemesis Tower. This is a difficult line. About three quarter's of the way up is the difficult crux.


Bring nuts for top rope protection.

If we are talking about the same route, it's definitely not a 5.12... NE Face climbs up to small right-facing corner, then right at the roof, then to the top. Nuts for TR anchor. Jun 22, 2005
[I'm] not sure what you are calling Nemesis Tower. It is a boulder problem (solo) really or a toprope. And its about a V7. I have done the route on TR and its difficult. To find the route go down the Torture chamber cliffline east til you see a large slab. The slab is beneath the [problem]. It starts with a small block roof then into a spoon shaped feature. Excellent climbing. Oh it was free-solo onsighted by [Breashears] in the 70s. Jun 30, 2005

I just wanted to write in and let everyone know I did make a mistake when I typed in the rating. The rating should be 5.11a/b. I could not find documentation that Breashears on-sighted this problem in the 1970's but did find documentation that he on-sighted Nemesis standard V7. Also you spelled Breashears incorrectly.

Rope soloed this yesterday, and I thought it was hard maybe 5.11+. I climbed the face starting below the blocky roof into a small fingertip seam delicately traversing right to the arete on small crimps and slopers. There seems to be several variations on this tower. May 8, 2013
