# collapsing successor of singular

Let $\lambda$ be a singular cardinal. Is it consistent that there is a forcing of size $\lambda^+$ that collapses $\lambda^+$ while preserving all cardinals below $\lambda$?

(Note that even without the size requirement this implies a failure of the Jensen covering property, so such a forcing does not necessarily exist.)

Theorem. Suppose $\kappa$ is a regular uncountable cardinal and $|P|\leq \kappa.$ Then $\Vdash_P cf(\kappa)=|\kappa|.$
Isn't the stationary tower forcing much larger than $\lambda^+$? –  Monroe Eskew May 13 '13 at 15:32
