BETA PHOTO: Delusions of Grandeur

Description 

Awesome 5.11 climbing up to the roof, pull a big dynamic move beginning the top crux. Continue into the roof, and make a desperate clip from a terrible hold. Moves continually get harder until you clip off the finishing jug.

Location 

In between Wet Dreams and Grunge Fest. Look for the orange/black hanging draws.

Protection 

6 Hanging Draws + 2 Cold-Shut Anchors

The new guidebook shows this as 5.11d... How was that determined?

Yeah, I don't think of this as an 11d at all. If Wet Dreams is a 12a, Delusions feels a little harder, so 12b. But the crux for me is gaining the anchor-clipping holds, and someone with even more reach than me could clip without having to do a couple difficult finishing moves (I know someone who does this), which might bump it back down to 12a/11d for him.
