The Guillotine and the Guillotine Wall are two smaller formations found at the east end of the East Rampart, above the No Sweat area. This area has lots of short and easy climbs, as well as a few nice routes of moderate difficulty.

Because it has easy access, easy routes, and is separate from the main East Rampart scene, it is popular for climbing classes and groups of beginners. It tends to either be full of people, or empty.

The area is also good for linking up multi-pitch routes of three or even four small pitches, starting from the CCC Trail below No Sweat and ending east of D'Arcy's Buttress.

Getting There 

Hike up the CCC Trail. Pass the No Sweat formation, and hike up along the talus field until you reach a wall. This is the Flatiron and the Monster. Turn right at the Flatiron and walk about 100 feet. Angle up and you will find the Guillotine. Angle down and you will reach the Guillotine Wall.

Featured Route For The Guillotine
Rock Climbing Photo: Climb the face, not the corners

The Pike 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Wisconsin : Devil's Lake : ... : The Guillotine
#52 on page 99 of Climbers Guide to Devils Lake. Described as: "Narrow face with small holds". Everyone agreed this was a 5.8+++, it's harder than most Devils Lake 5.8s. Do not use either corners of the face or you are off route. It's a bare climb with small holds, two ledges to rest on, nothing more.I named it The Pike as it's part of The Guillotine, and what's left to do with a decapitated head? Put it on The Pike....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wisconsin
