The crib "SCDDB Contributed cribs ...

The crib "SCDDB Contributed cribs and diagrams" is actually the official description as published.

The Cambridge University Strathspey & Reel Club display team who made the video says "we found it impractical for the dancing couples to pass RSh in the middle (i.e. going the long way around the other three dancers), as the deviser specified. We passed LSh, as you can see in the video."
