Is this route intended to link up with either Starlight or the route to the right?

Easy fun route in the steepness.

Jugs to two bolt crux to more jugs.
Nice bouldery sequence all though short.
mid-12 for sure.

This route ends with Starlight, you just follow the jugs left after the crux.

I disagree about the crux, my partner cruised it with a high right heelhook. As I can't get the heelhook (too unbalanced at 6'2") I have to make the reach from a small left undercling which is a much more powerful move.
