Hard Pushed V10 - Second Ascent

In 2012, Ben Smith corrected past indiscretions with the true first ascent of Hard Pushed V10 - an obvious stand start. 

Jump starts are inherently controversial and should only be done as a last resort. I went out to snag a video of the original start to Pushed V9 for Mobeta, but to make matters worse, I could reach the jump start from the ground! Short climbers have to jump, while tall climbers enjoy a silly advantage.

Hard Pushed is much better since the start is equally accessible to climbers of all sizes and it retains the shoulder destroying spirit of the first move for everyone to enjoy. I'm not going to upload my video for Pushed since it's a climb that should never have existed and should just fade away.
