18m. Sector: Pride Evans Cave. Links the start of House Burning Down and the finish of Sing a Mean Toon, Kid. A superb and sustained direct line albeit with little new climbing. Start up HBD using its first three bolts then launch straight up to reach the loose rail of SAMTK followed by its multi-slap crux. To compensate for the absence of a bolt on the link, a quickdraw can be hung on a 120 cm sling on the bolt above the loose rail: to make it hang conveniently, a second 120 cm sling can be clipped to the fourth bolt of HBD. The ancient rusty bolt below the loose rail should not be trusted. Will need more ascents to settle the grade: F7c+ or hard F7c.
