The Guillotine is another wonderful Blue Mounds Top-rope route. It begins on a short section of excellent steep finger crack and then moves to a narrow (often damp) shelf. Right off the shelf is the crux of the route, a big bulge with under-clings and trademark Blue Mounds flaring finger crack. After pulling the crux, trend left with the larger holds then go for the top carefully because there will be lots of cactus on the final ledges.
