Climb to a small ledge clipping the first two bolts in route. Make pinchy delicate moves to continue upward. After clipping the third bolt, the climbing eases up a bit and cruise to the top. The crux is finding the hidden ledge (although last time I was on it, it was chalked rediculously).
  • RCM&W #110, p. 135.


Doctor Limit is immediately right of Two Tone Zephyr, and to the left of Frequent Flatulence.


4 or 5 bolts, to a two bolt anchor. Please use your own hardware for top roping whenever possible.

This is probably the second best 11 at redwing, after chinese freedom. Good rock, technical climbing the whole way.

Note that there is a climb with no bolt line between Two-tone Zephyr and Doctor Limit called Eel Pocket Route. It will be listed in the guides, but if you're counting bolt lines the route description here is correct. Eel Pocket Route can be top-roped from the Doctor Limit anchors.

When I climbed it I felt like it was really clean. I understand now that the bottom is a little dirty, probably from the rain. I would still consider this route a classic for the area.
