Are there any?

I want to learn how to leavittate. Since the NRG is the place where I climb the most, I was wondering if there are any hand-stackable splitters in the gorge.

China Crisis is the best I can think of, but it leans right and it's in a little dihedral. The start of Ms. Field's Folly / Geisha Girl is off-fist but it's only 10' long.

Is there anything better at the NRG for leavittation? Like Wide Pride at the Red?

Edit: spelling

If you are really interested in learning how to do that technique, I recommend the boulder about 100 yards from Crouching Tiger and Hidden Dragon in RRG. It is probably a 40' wide roof splitter and is pretty safe, dry in the rain, and a great place to practice Leavittation.

NRG, I don't know much about, sry.

In the meantime, do thousands of Inverted Sit Ups and hanging leg raises....

You'll need an awful lot of fists to Leavittate a 40'-wide crack. Tongue

It ain't gonna be a walk in the park (I'd imagine), but Let's Get Physical at the Bridge Buttress has easy top access for TR-ing.
