Great puzzle! I love how it sets up for the big finish.

I too liked the beginning, but couldn’t find much logic in the end…

• SS says:

Took me way too long to figure out how to get those last pieces to fit!

• Carl W says:

Probably as much as any puzzle I have previously seen on this site, this puzzle hits a very discernible point where it suddenly requires a different kind of logic than anything used previously.

And the first phase of the puzzle is so smooth and elegant that it gently walks you up to that cliff and then drops you off into it.

I think that’s a rather clever construction, and I appreciated it.

For anyone still struggling: There definitely is a logical way to tackle the final phase of the puzzle, but it’s quite different than anything that occurs before.

Thanks for the fun puzzle, Grant!
