Star Crunch is located on the left side of Puddy's Tower, two routes to the left of the large boulder at the base of Puddy's. Start up big holds before encountering the first crux about a 3rd of the way up the climb. Continue up a slabby middle section before reaching the second crux that pulls onto a vertical face. From there the climbing is somewhat sustained but there are always good holds where you need them.
This is a great climb that makes what can feel like bigger moves through big holds. You will always get a rest where needed. Rock quality is good through the bulk of the climb.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
