Angle to the right from just below First Born/Double Exposure. Hard/tricky just after 3rd bolt and going over the 4th then it gets easier again. Funky moves at the last two bolts through the crack/chimney. Long route, 60m rope or tie knots on a 50m when rappelling.
To the left of KGB. Start is almost directly below the chimney of First Born on a ledge. Angle up and to the right for the 1st 3 bolts then head up past 6 more. Climber goes out of sight after small roof with obvious 2 hand pocket (great undercling).
Bolts (9) with chains at the top. For toproping leave the last 2 draws clipped and your rope will run well.

I think you are talking about Double Exposure 11a/b

Double Exposure begins way left of KGB and goes up along the large crack for a bit then heads out under the large and obvious roof with bolts located fairly closely beneath that obvious roof.
Overbearing Underminer on the other hand begins down at essentially the same area but below the start of DE; stepping out almost immediately right onto the lower face directly to the left of KGB and continuing off up and to the right and toward the upper moves of it. My route comes very close to the left of KGB at it's upper crux roof. In fact, the upper portion and bolts for Overbearing Underminer are in the large chimney/crack to the left of the upper portion of KGB.
I modified the route description to refer to the start of First Born/Double Exposure to help clarify. I hope it helps.

Found some loose stuff on this route, would be 3 stars once it cleans some. Hard moves after the 3rd bolt!

Felt harder than a 10, curious if holds broke.
