Nemesis Blog postings:
Nemesis is one of the best WI6 routes in the Canadian Rockies and is a great introduction to the climbing at the legendary Stanley Headwall. The climb is usually done as 3 or 4 pitches, with the crux coming about two thirds of the way up. Most years some funky ice mushrooms provide the technical crux as well as a good pump as you pick your way around, through, and over them!
Location: Radium Highway (Hwy 93 South). 45 minutes from Canmore.
Logistics: Climbs at the Stanley Headwall are best done as day trips from Canmore or Banff. Nemesis is guided
with a 1:1 guide to guest ratio only, unless both guests have extensive experience. Skis or snowshoes are often needed for the approach.
