Between two opposing dihedrals is a seemingly blank face with an intimidating hanging chock stone above. Difficult moves right off the deck posit you on a face with good holds few and far between. A short crux follows clipping the 2nd bolt, but the real business is on the hanging Guillotine itself- don't screw up!
This is a striking line that lies between two opposing dihedrals.
6 bolts and chain anchors.

The right-hand dihedral goes at about 5.8. Gear to 3" 1 or 2 stars. A little dirty. but worth doing.

Definitely felt more like 11c than 11b...but the holds are there and it's a super good route. A little intimidating climbing underneath the guillotine, but it seems solid enough. I placed a #3 C4 at the flake, but it proved unnecessary as the 4th clip is easy to reach from the undercling. Nice work, Siegrists!
