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.

What a cool route with nice sustained technical climbing. Which is just as well as i keep falling off the top moves. Extending the bolt above the rail works well. Found a rest above the rail by jamming hip against the small corner. Quite hard for the grade. Some loose holds by the third bolt - take care.

Ah, that crux again! Didn't quite go, but much better than sing a mean toon.

Really good. First go, but had already done all but 3 of the moves on other routes. Bolt positions are fine.

One of the best in Cheddar, would go with 7c. First redpoint after putting the clips in but have done all the moves many times on other routes. No sling setup required, there's nowhere obvious to clip from on the 'runout' anyway and the fall is totally safe?!

Should have gone first rp but miss timed the last hard move! A few expletives later went next go (done all other lines so little new climbing), fantastic direct climb, unlike smtk this flows and is direct and imo is a better line - deserves an independant bolt although the double sling method works well it doesnt allow an onsite. Overall grade I think fair at 7c. Pyro L is very similar but slightly harder.

A great line. Would be the best on the crag if the bolts where in the right place. Felt like 7c.

Very good link up, all the best climbing on the cliff. Felt like 7c
