Whoa, a mount!

About
An actual beam mount, and therefore the devil that must be killed upon first sight, the front tuck mount is largely discouraged on beam. This is ostensibly because of its risk, even though performing a risky acro element two seconds after the mount is apparently fine. It’s those first two seconds, though. They’re the most important.

The front tuck mount is worth only a D, but anyone performing a real mount like this gets an automatic gold star from us, which is worth far more than a D.
