A complete sandbag at its old grade of 16. Strap on your knee pads and climb the horrible tight orange groove R of DO. The crack flairs a lot, so getting gear to stay in is quite a mission. Grunt and flail up this pukefest until you come to a stance at 2/3 height. Sweat and vomit and now you will never do this route again, then continue easily to the top.
