DescriptionThis interesting route passes under a guillotine-like flake near the top of p1, hence the name.
p1: climbs a shallow depression in the face with some foliage, then up and right through a shallow dihedral with a bush at its base; continue up cracks and then under a flake into the guillotine cave. A 60 m rope will allow you to continue up and left above the flake to a good belay ledge. With a 50 m rope, set a belay at the flake, then scramble up to the ledge to set a belay for p2.
p2: Climb up toward a large red flake and pass between it and a "lollipop" shaped tree on steep protectable rock; continue up cracks to a 2-bolt anchor (shared with Chile Verde) or anchor off trees to the right. This pitch is better than p1.
