Is this the bolt line just left of the small death star looking hueco? If so i thinks is 12c starting left hand crimp right hand lower sloping hold.

Not sure what you are calling the Death Star hueco. I added a pic of the left side with the lines listed. Kircus Act isn't closed to 12c. It starts just left of Hot Wet Noodles with a reach up to a shallow sharpish left hand pocket and throw right to a side pull small hueco.

Looking at the pic, I think the Death Star hueco is the small one at the start I mentioned that I throw to the right side of. If you didn't use the small hueco, I could see the start being a fair bit harder.

Shares start holds of Hot Wet Noodles if you are going to keep the rating 5.11d/12a. The direct start looks pretty heinous. This is going to be a fun one once it cleans up a bit more!
