We're a little confused here. We can get most of the trapdoors by going CCW, but there's two problem areas: the trapdoor at (13,11) and the trapdoor at (15,24).

The former simply takes too long to set up. We keep trying to park the mimic at (14,15) and (15,16) to maneuver it to go for it, but even if we reach it, the latter trapdoor becomes the problem.

The latter lacks space. If we go for the former trapdoor first, we end up in a situation where the gel grows too much and we can't properly reach it with the mimic. We can't go for this before the former trapdoor, too, since it's blocked behind one of the trapdoors.

What're we not seeing here? Is moving CCW the wrong play in the first place?

Going in CCW direction is definitely doable, I did it that way.

After that, it is mostly about efficient mimic movement, using the diagonal moves to your advantage.
