BETA PHOTO: Cuts left at top of pod.
Similar to the 11c which tackles the big pod to the left, The Eleven (per JG's guidebook) embarks on a journey through a slab, a pod capped by a roof and a thin upper face.
Start in the creek and climb a smooth slab via intricate face moves on small holds, eventually reaching an insecure stance inside a small pod. A bit of trickery gets you out of the pod on bomber underclings, giving you time to contemplate the second half of the route. You will be rewarded by another great resting stance if you survive the crux, a left trending affair of bigger moves on small holds and diminutive feet. Once you've regained your composure, surmount a final bulge on chossier rock to reach the anchor.
The route seems to meets with the 12++ to the right (a route which branches off from Alma) but an independent easier line of holds can be found directly above the last resting stance.
The Eleven is the 2nd bolted line to the left of Alma (identifiable by the namesake graffiti about 15' up the wall). It shares anchor with a 12+ routes which splits from Alma at the 2nd or 3rd bolt.
Recognizable features include a body sized pod below a vertical crack into a dark face.
8 bolts to anchors. As usual, stick clipping the first bolt is a good call for a first try as the slab sequence is tricky and the holds always seem to be coated in dust.

This route is immediately to the right of walk the plank. It goes through a slab, and then enters a large pod. At the apex of the pod it cuts left. Probably 11+ or so. A great line, insecure at the top but some of the best climbing you'll do.

So. This route is the first independent line left of Alma B. It is now 3 routes to the right of Walk the Plank. It is a fabulous rock climb. It's almost 12a. Doesn't get much traffic because of the awkward belay. After I put a plank and fixed draws, it wil get heavy traffic. A must do!!
