Yeah, I’m going pretty low with this grid. I made intersecting staggered stacks in the middle, which is why I went all the way down to 66. It started with wanting to use both the answer at 34-Across and the answer at 17-Down because they had the same middle letter, then it became “Let’s see if we can do a stack across intersecting the central down answer”, then “That worked pretty well, how about a vertical stack too?” I basically drove the wedge in and eased it in wider and wider to see how far in the wedge would go. Pretty far, it turned out.

Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Tuesday!
