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 Metolius Foundry Hangboard is a decent hangboard that provides a wide variety of hold types in a compact size. While the compact size is nice if you are lacking space for hanging the board, it does limit the number of holds on the board compared to other wider models.
