This is the next major concentration of classic climbing as you walk west along the cliffband from the top of the approach trail. You should pass 100-200 yards of uninspring rock after walking under Plumber's Crack. (the wide splitter on the left end of the Lost Art zone) The twin cracks and flake/namesake of Guillotine, the small roof right of the Guillotine belay ledge, (not pictured in the topo-sorry!) and the parallel dihedrals above and left of that are all good landmarks to identify.

This section of cliff is greater than ~40m tall. Many of these routes have optional belays at roughly half height but can usually be led from the ground in a single pitch.

Killer! Despite it's short length, this is hands down one of the best fingercracks in the state. Steep, powerful locks on perfect rock are followed by an airy, but easier sequence on the slab between crack systems. Thin gear in incipient features is available....[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon
