Clarification – L4 Prep Liberty to Pancake

The correct answer to the L4 Prep Liberty to Pancake quiz is the skill is Illegal in Level 4 as performed. The skill is a downward inversion passing above prep level, which is not allowed per Stunts J2, Clarification 1. The exception

A downward inversion stunt in which both of the top person’s legs/feet remain in the grip of a base(s) while performing a fold over/pike forward rotation to be caught on the top person’s back.
