“I would be lying if I said I don’t get scared.” Monique Forestier has carved out a career from getting caught between a rock and a hard place. The difference between Monique and other people though, is that she wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in the world.
As a highly accomplished rock climber, Monique has completed some very difficult climbs around the world.
And along the way she became the first Australian woman to climb routes graded 31, 32, 33 and 34. To put that into perspective, the top grade climbed by an Australian male is 35. Monique has allowed rock climbing
to infiltrate almost every part of her existence. When she’s not travelling the world climbing, she’s coaching others or speaking about climbing at events, she works with her husband Simon Carter on his photography business (which focuses on rock climbing of course) and is a mother to their daughter Coco.
Nemesis shows the determination and perseverance required to succeed at the top end of rock climbing on a project that pushed Monique to her limit.
The film is an original production completed with support from Adventure Film Tours & Sterling Rope.
