              • whimsy 🤓13:14 · about 2 months ago
                Fun! A treat without the angst of, well, a couple of other "challenging" puzzlers I've been dealing with -- :)
                • edestlin 🤓5:33 · about 2 months ago
                  Woo hoo! Thanks for the slam dunk on this lovely Sunday morning.
                  • dplass 9:38 · about 2 months ago
                    Thanks!
                    • Bbaack 🤓34:12 · about 2 months ago

                      • T. G. 12:28 · about 2 months ago
                        Oh my God I figured one out.
                        • hoover 🤓7:16 · about 2 months ago
                          Nice to solve one again after weeks of drought!
                          • wendy walker 10s · about 2 months ago
                            And I was just editing a chapter about Y2K! Thanks, Will -- lots of fun.
                            • Bird Lives 4s · about 2 months ago
                              I remember another mountain puzzle from Will -- "One Up," (https://pandorasblocks.org/oneup) -- a brilliant construction. Also much more difficult. This week's is an easy climb.
                              • Carolyn 3s · about 2 months ago
                                Lots of fun! Thanks for the Sunday morning treat.
                                • Jeff G 5s · about 2 months ago
                                  Excellent! Thanks!
                                  • Anita and Steve 2s · about 2 months ago
                                    Got this one with only 1/4 the grid filled. Halfway through the 2nd theme entry. :-)
                                    • benchen71 🤓9:44 · about 2 months ago
                                      That's where I had it pegged, too!
                                    • THC 🤓7:47 · about 2 months ago
                                      Welcome change in CWP land!
                                      • ReB 3s · about 2 months ago
                                        Actually, this was my first thought from the title before I started on the meta. My second thought was, nah, that's too short of a name for a meta. Hah!
                                        • CPJohnson 4s · about 2 months ago
                                          Thanks, Will!

                                            • Jim McNeely 🤓10:33 · about 2 months ago
                                              Finally solved a meta! Starting to get the hang of it.
