The trifecta of tough crosswords to wrap up our crossword-solving week, today's puzzle had 5 answers that started off running across, but ended rising vertically, with the remainder of the horizontal answer forming a different phrase that ended in ASH. There was some foreshadowing, 123A, Within arm's reach, ATONESELBOW, and 100A, What a button an armrest may control, SEATANGLE, as well as the blatant revealer, the combination of 50A and 97A, RISEFROMTHEASHES. Coincidentally, that's what Mike's hoping to do after his weekendus horribilis, crossword-wise, while Jean, as usual, found the going a trifle easier. We give this 4.5 squares on the JAMCR scale.
