Description 

Long term project put to rest by Nik O. He earned this one. Only seen a few repeats, including ascents by Daniel Woods and Paul Robinson. Both said they found the problem to be of high quality.
Sit-start in obvious pocket jug. Move up the feature, finishing to the left on crimps. Paul finished straight up. Crux is the intro moves. Note: I have not climbed this. Just rated it to give users an idea of the quality.

REMEMBER:
-If it has rained in the past 24 hours, do not climb at Eldon.
-Wipe your shoes off before you climb.
-Leave no trace. Erase tick marks. Pack out any trash, yours or others'.

Location 

Near the top of the hills. Above That Girl's a Bitch (the big slab at the base of the hill).

Protection 

2-3 pads.

I'm a little surprised to see this suggested as V11. Has anyone who has done it suggested that grade? I thought Nic called it solid at V12.

Just food for thought- you've climbed this not me. But I think that these two problems are completely different styles, and that comparing them is sort of apples to oranges. It just seems like too many climbers put too many days into this thing before it got done to be V11. But I've never climbed that grade so I don't really know.
