Puzzle Notes

Dear subscribers: 

This week's puzzle is a contest! Francis Heaney's "Flight Path" is 4.5/5 in difficulty. Find the correct answers to the two extra clues, and send them to escape@avxword.com by midnight on Thursday for a chance to win six months of bonus AVCX subscription time, for yourself or a friend.

The bonus clues are given in the PDF, or in the "notes" section of the Across Lite file. They read:

"The grid below represents a prison, from which you must escape. Your escape route will travel through horizontally and vertically adjacent cells, and you'll have to hollow out some walls as you go. Two clues (including enumerations) will help you find your way. Good luck, and we'll see you on the outside."

Extra clues:


Full route: Method you'll be using to escape this prison (7 1 6 6 2 7)

Hollowed-out walls: Like a prison that's possible to escape from (8)

Good luck!
