This puzzle was originally published Thursday, April 30, 2009 in The Daily Telegraph


I found today's puzzle to be definitely a bit more difficult than yesterday's, and I had to dig into the Tool Chest fairly early. I did complete the puzzle but without fully comprehending the wordplay on one clue.

The wordplay in this clue would surely have been obvious had I only known what a "gite" is (see Today's Glossary).
