Ms. Clairol is yet another Helicopter variation, but a really good one. Same start for Helicopter, but instead of going to the left hand with the thumb catch, go to the sloper down and left, in the v-slot. Right hand goes straight above the left on the point, then without matching your hands get the feet up and do a big lock-off to the rail just down and left of the normal Helicopter rail. Get the good pinch undercling with your right, bump the left hand to the Helicopter rail, and finish on Helicopter.


On the left side of the Black Hole, sharing the same start as Helicopter.


A pad and a spotter will do.

This is another cool variation to Helicopter. Not to sure about the grade, my reach definitely makes the lock off a bit easier. Probably a height dependent grade (aren't they all? lol).
