Description Suggest change

This is a variation of Helicopter and also the start of some of the hard Helicopter eliminates such as CPR, Pop Goes the Weasel, and Grape Ape. This is also the version of Helicopter used in Air Loopis. Hopefully this will help clarify some of the descriptions of these problems.

Begin with your left hand on a good undercling (the "toe-hook hold" for the typical Helicopter beta) and with your right hand on a "circular" undercling up and right of your left hand. Pull on, and slap up and left to a set of dish-like slopers. Then, get your feet sorted, match, and do some traversing moves into the top half of Helicopter.

I would say that this is maybe a half-grade harder than the typical Helicopter start (i.e. the Flaming Arrow start).

Protection Suggest change

0-3 pads, depending on how cool you are.
