About Guillotine Band:

Before the Makeover Band (extreme makeover), after Pleasure Palace, traveling west on the cliff base trail - the Guillotine Area is easily found by identifying Guillotine itself with its extremely obvious double crack. Classic climbs of the Guillotine Area do remain previous to Guillotine (i.e. Noodle Cracker, 2 Beers) but the routes climbers left or west of Guillotine are easier to track in with less foliage cover (Pool Guy and the many, many quality routes unfolding thru Full Circle). Beyond Full Circle routes are well spaced with lots of development opportunity before Extreme Makeover
