    Unquestionably the best route on Doctors wall. The direct sequence, for a shorter person, was pretty freaking cool. After, you climb up through a number of fantastic sequences into an active rest, you press onward into a long string of physical moves, here you had better have your fighting face in snarl mode. At the top of the route, I was pumped, but confident that I had it in the bag. I move up left, and mid movement my left hand slips off, and I lose my upward momentum. As I am desperately patting around for any little thing to help me up, my left foot blows, and miraculously, as I am peeling off, my left hand shoots out to a gaston undercling and I let out the biggest battle cry of my life. In maximum power, crisis mode, I manage to hold on. My forearms are completely flared from cranking myself back onto the route, and I just feel animalistic. Growling onward, I manage to fight through an absolutely epic battle to get to the chains. SO SICK. My apologies to those at the crag. I got a little excited. Have not been this psyched in a long time!

    Wow! Flailed all over this thing my first go and cleaned the draws in defeat. Then decided to go back up and fell going for the chains while rehanging the draws. Took a nap and mustered up every bit of energy I had to send! Did the direct start but it doesn't do anything to the grade. Just a more obvious line. five star

    Really really good! Bouldery finish is sustained hard climbing. Felt a little desperate, stout for the grade.
