Description 

The route is straightforward, with 5.6 climbing, solid rock, and great gear, past an admirable pile of guano and to the obvious ledge about 60' up. After that, another 20' of more challenging climbing following the weakness up brings you to the anchors.

Both first ascentionists agree that the final 20 feet are not quality and that the anchors should be installed at the top of the first 60' (to finish Guanito). As both have moved from Leadville, that work is open to anyone with the know how and ganas.

Location 

Guanote is the obvious crack in a dihedral near the center of the wall. Toward the top of the obvious crack is a large cavern that happens to be filled with quivering, glistening guano.

Protection 

Standard rack.
