The 11a variation of Realm of the Overhang starts in the center of the overhung face and moves straight left to the second bolt. This is the crux. From there, climbing eases for 20 feet before you follow an overhung crack up and right to the anchors. The top part is very pumpy.

There is also an 11c variation that ascends the VERY overhung left side of the wall and meets the main route after the third bolt. I found clipping the third bolt to be quite difficult as did Aron. Interesting falls can result.

Best way - Have the second climb and clean the route is the easiest way.
Alt way - Once you've topped out, clip a draw/sling from you to the other side of the rope to stay near the gear while lowering. At the last bolt you clean, clip to that bolt and unclip from the rope, then finally unclip from the bolt and enjoy the swing :)

has anyone found this a bitch to clean? any suggestions on the best way to get the draws off, the way we did seemed harder than the climb itself Oct 27, 2012

although the technical crux of the route is low, its the increasing pump on this steep climb that will get ya Nov 6, 2009
