Start under the roof to the left of Flying High Again and the original start to the Realm of the Overhang (11a). Use an extra long draw at the first bolt if you want to avoid rope drag or skip it all together. Climb directly over the intricate bulge and link up to the Realm of the Overhang.

4 out of 5 stars Awesome bit of rock.

What a fun route. It took a little figuring out, but what a cool sequence. Some say that the crux might be a little harder than 11d. Don't miss the third bolt.
