Comments: FYI: The original chopping block was dislodged from the Guillotine above many years ago(hence the name). The original anchors are at the top and in the center of the buttress. The original start was a cleaned line to the right of the now existing line of the left at the bottom. The original started up the face directly in the center. This route deserves to be restored to the original line up the middle. It was cleaned well with that. But the last bolt through some choss at the top was never inst... more >>

Comments: This would be considered a "classic" as far as formation and position. The rock is not clean but good pro can be found. Worth doing at least once for the experience.

Comments: Once a long time ago before the route was bolted, I was going to put it up so that it would have taken the line at the bottom to the left of the fourth class vegetated ramp and up the steeper, cleaner rock rock with a little cleaning. I think it would add to the quality and the grade consistency of the route. Daniel and Jason, would you mind if I went ahead and did this upgrade to the route? It would be better than belaying from an unnecessary single bolt. When I did it, I climbed the fourth cla... more >>

Comments: Add 1 each of the new BD #4 or #3 for the bouldery start, and #2(there are placements), would be added to the suggested rack. Cool Route.

Comments: This was a really fun and solid route. We took doubles and alpine runners which warded off any rope drag. The new #5 camalot helps the confidence on the pitch one exit. The fixed pin on pitch 2 protects the crux fine. Look around, there are a few different ways to move through the crux. Pitch three is definitely worth doing, as it was solid and had fun exposed moves with good gear. We topped out and walked off with board lasted climbing shoes down large boulders on the scree slope.

Comments: Update: I went out here yesterday and discovered that most of, if not all of these routes were affected greatly by the Los Conchas fire in 2011. Bolts and rock layers have been cooked by firestorms with ambient air temps greater than 2500 degrees Fahrenheit. There are no live trees left, no shade, crumbling rock, burned hardware, and is pretty much a wasteland now. It was quite sobering to find this. This marks the end of an era, and a wonderful area that this was. I am thankful to have gotten t... more >>

Comments: The 5.10 variation is worth it. I would suggest not wearing a pack for this one.

Comments: This thing shut me down. I feel it is harder than .11a. Isn't v3 equivalent to 5.12? Maybe I was missing something.

Comments: All egos aside. This is a superb route whether done naturally, or clipping the bolts. It is always respectful to check with the FA folks but not always an option. Either way the route kicks butt and gets more traffic with bolts installed. We as climbers have to be able to adapt to change. It is different now than it was in the eighties, and standards will continue to change. If you want opposition and battles, join the army.

Comments: The second bolt is suspect and needs to be replaced asap. I would not recommend a fall on this bolt as it is sticking out of the rock almost two inches, wiggles by hand, is a mega spinner, and the threads are stripped. This scared me worse than a bad ice screw. Comfort would be added with the use of a screamer.

Comments: I think this was around 1995. He soloed everything at The Y that day. He would go up one route, then down climb a different line. I was impressed but nervous.

Comments: A comfortable rack for this would be (2)#4 Camalots, (2)#5 Camalots, an a #6 Camalot for the top out moves. This climb is a little dirty but actually pretty fun and worth at least doing once. The only turnoff is the Sardonic Death boulder that looms directly above this climb.
