BETA PHOTO: Climb to the right of the left corner.


This route starts about 15 to the left of Levitation. Climb to the right of the corner by about 6 feet. Use small sidepulls and crimps to gain a decent ledge then follow thin crack to another ledge and take it to the top.


Left side of Guillotine Wall.


If Rhoads leads this before me I'll quit climbing.

Haha! Well, go for it! I just want to OS it- that's all that matters to me.

Haha, I led it. There was only a very iffy offset placement 15ft up. A small tri-cam may have worked as well. It was a stretch to place and any upward pull would have popped it right out.

Start this with a lunge to a good left hand jug near the corner, move on to the face and place your piece high, then layback in the crack utilizing the left corner a bit.

AND...I just ruined your on-sight Andy!

Actually I have to quit climbing. Thanks a lot, Rhoads. I'm ruined.
