BETA PHOTO: Follow corner crack through roofs.

Description 

Levitation is an inside corner system on the left side of the Guillotine wall- the corner system to the left of Labor Pains (5.10b). Get off the ground, crux, and move through the series of low roofs using good jams and stemming. A 5.9 variation goes up the left face after pulling the first roof. This climb is a good lead for those just breaking into the trad game. Dare I to say that this might be harder if face holds aren't used and only jams employed to move over the roofs?


Location 

Left side of the Guillotine wall.

Tough direct start makes this rating a bit higher- not for beginners

A very nice first lead, plenty of pro' for hex nuts even.

Good climb but I wouldn't recommend this to beginner leaders unless you want to see them hit the ground at the start.
