Nice shot, Bev. Crested pigeons are much prettier than the ordinary ones.

Hi Les. After f5=8,348 @ d9e79,and d8=9.I then make it to UP43.

Hi cenoman. After f5=8, I can only reach UP43.Don't you need another step to reach UP81?

Best Regards, Alfred.

Sorry, should read ......and e8=9. (not d8).

Hi Alfred,
Once you have reached 43 solved cells, you can notice the naked triplet (157)@h569, and then the locked pair (5)@i13 =>-5i4. So d4=5 and unique possibilities UP 81
Best regards. cenoman
