Vicarious Levitation

With my assorted strains and pulls finally starting to disappear during this third week of not climbing,  I find myself cautiously optimistic that I'll be back on the rocks soon.  In the meantime, I've been happy to hear from a few strong locals who have descended on Sykesville's Levitation Area, sending projects and repeating high quality lines such as Sparkly Spots.  We've been fortunate to have a few great videos come out of these visits, which combined with the videos of Mulligan Flash really demonstrate what a high quality little area this is.

For a little highball action, here's one from Brian Spiering showing two lines to the right of Mulligan Flash.

Then for a complete change of pace, check out this crazy little dyno Brian put up on a blank section the Upper Levitation boulder.

We also have video of two interpretations of the left arete of the Jam Boulder, marked in the mini-guide as the "Fat Man Project."  Brian's version moves straight up off the pinch...

While Justin Smith follows the arete out right to top out above the "Ro-Fo Project."

As stated in this post, the administrator of mdguides is planning to update the Levitation guide, and would like to hear from anyone who has visited the area and has input on grades or new lines that have been done.  Information may be left in comments directly on the post.

Looks like a nice weekend coming up.  Hope everyone gets a chance to go out and play!
