A tall ladder mounted to a castered stand is brought out on stage. The magician's assistant climbs the ladder and as she reaches the top, a simple gesture from the magician causes her to vanish in mid-air. This utilitarian prop can be used as a vanish or appearance. It also makes a great addition to other props where an assistant is required to vanish and reappear elsewhere or vice versa, vanish from the ladder and reappear in another illusion. We give you all the details to construct this seldom seen, yet amazing and practical illusion.
