Puzzle 121 – “And Then We’ll Take It Higher”
I’m pleased with the grid shape on this one: some stacks at top and bottom, some long entries in the middle, and no sector terribly closed off.
The seed entry was 25-Across (which you now have stuck in your head too; you’re welcome). Favorite clues: 26-Down (which you might also now have stuck in your head as well), and 33-Down, as it’s an example of one of my favorite types of trivia-based clues: something that looks ungettable on first glance, but is totally gettable if you just play with some etymology knowledge. (You have that, right? I mean, we’re all wordsmiths here…)
As always yall, comments are welcomed. Hope you enjoy. Happy solving, friends.
