i Cryptic Crossword 1037 Scorpion

June 6, 2014

An enjoyable challenge today from Scorpion. Lots of careful thought required, a few I checked before putting the answer in.

Loads of ticks by the clues, but I’m nominating 22d as my COD – ‘Pulling up, it accommodates adolescent’s first kiss (4)’.

The puzzle is discussed in much greater detail here:

    Agree with you as to the quality today… and only one tiny anagram used -‘two shakes’- as a part of 10ac.
