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.

James Smith 30 Mar, 2017 Lead dog Quality climbing on the first properly warm afternoon/evening of the year. Tied in twice, felt like it could just go on the second go but got a bit confused at the start of the 'slap sequence'. Psyched to go back for round 2!

Nick Russell 23 Jul, 2016 Lead rpt Well, I'd just ticked "Sing a Mean Toon, Kid" so the crux was fresh in my mind. Second go. Cool route, and definitely a natural line. Clipped the fourth bolt on HBD, then it felt safe to run it out to the next one on SAMTK.

Wise 3 Jul, 2016 Lead RP Finally put this to bed. What a cool route with nice sustained technical climbing all the way from the bottom to top. In my opinion the best line on Pride Evans. Extending the bolt above the rail works well. Can get a good rest above the rail by jamming hip against the small corner. Quite hard for the grade.

i_a_coops 1 Oct, 2014 - 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?!

eddieclimb 21 Jul, 2014 Lead RP 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.
