Roraima, Hotel Guácharo. Kurt Albert, Renato Botte, Ivan Calderon, Michael Thaler, and I established Hotel Guácharo (550m, 7a+) in February 2009. This southeast face route is equipped at belays, with the rest mostly traditionally protected. The route has long runouts and is very psychological and athletic. Dry weather is necessary for the last two pitches. Atop the Roraima plateau are cairns signaling the route's exit.
