Description

Revlon is a slightly more difficult variation to Helicopter. It is an interesting problem that requires long, static moves and good body tension.As with many Morrison problems, it's best to have someone tell you exactly where the holds are. Revlon is an eliminate, meaning not everything is on. Nonetheless, this brief description with the picture should suffice.Begin with the same holds as Heli., however, instead of tossing up left, cross up with your right to a sloper with a thumb catch. Good footwork allows you to go up left to a triangle hold, and then right again to a small crimper slot. High step and get your left hand into the lower section of the overhead, diagonal crack. Get a right hand undercling, throw in the kneebar, and finish Helicopter. There is a harder, but very similar version to Revlon called Clairol, at V7.

Protection

Same as Helicopter. Bring a pad and spotter.
