Interesting. Is that right? The problem description says start on starfish hold. If your photo is correct, that perhaps explains why so many think this problem is on the soft side. I had to stand on a folded pad to reach the starfish hold. Pretty sure I would never be able to find the reserve again but if and when I do, I will need to start lower!

Chris I had a discussion with Peter about this and per his understanding this is the "classic or original start" for this problem and so maybe we should change the description to eliminate the confusion. Also being on the shorter side I had to stack 4 pads...which is just silly when there's an excellent obvious standing start to this problem. Next time you want to go I can get us there!...probably.

Chris, it does actually start one move below the Starfish hold. My original post was wrong. It does make the start better IMO and not any harder really.
