The Occasionalist is another convoluted Lobby challenge, but one of the better sequences. I will try to desribe it, but it is tough.
The beginning is a variation of Willow. Start on the left sloping rail (as for Willow). Cross with the right hand to the upper crimp (as for Nork). Move through with the left hand to the sloping hold in the V-section of Willow (skipping both of the good crimpers in here). Now cross right hand to the crack, move left hand way out left to the small crimp (as for willow), but instead of going again with the left hand, cross through on this hold and get your right hand to the mini-jug.
Now the fun begins. Pull hard and go left hand way up to the two finger pocket on the side of the massive jug in the middle of the lobby. Next pull hard again and get your right hand all the way to the upper crimper under the roof. Simply finish the crimper traverse and go to the arete jug for the end, and hopefully the applause. Two stars for unique moves, but alas quite convoluted.

Thanks Nate..A nice variation when doing the big cross move down low is to go right hand to the Biceps hold (the triangle crimper), then left hand to the "chip" below the lip...This way you gain extra style points by using a drop knee on each leg. After sending, listen to the ladies swoon...or hack up a lung! Young Doug.
