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

Good climb but I wouldn't recommend this to beginner leaders unless you want to see them hit the ground at the start. Aug 18, 2012
A very nice first lead, plenty of pro' for hex nuts even. Jun 13, 2011
