In this post, the exocet trials are completed and a path to the monster’s cave is mapped and cleared of fog. A color wrap brings us to base camp, for the final ascent.
And the blue removals in r3 leave the remaining 1’s and 3’s in the N box, forcing Nr3np16 and another deadly rectangle in 1 and 6. The trial fails, leaving np36 in Cr5. And it wasn’t that hard.
So now we’re ready to follow up on the third pair of ANL, a 3-chain and a 6-chain forming third fog clearing nice loop. This time there is no figure 8 and no cell crossing that wraps a color. We also note that the colors cooperate to avoid the row naked pairs that would constitute a deadly rectangle.
Next time we’re going for a pink olive analysis of the 1-patterns, where freeforms from the left side are significantly restricted. With a little boning up on that, you could get there first.
My pink 1-freeforms will start at r7c1. Go for it.
