Sudoku for Normal People ("Classic" Sudoku):
A grid is divided into nine blocks, each containing nine squares. The rules of the game are simple: each of the nine blocks has to contain all the numbers 1-9 within its squares. Each number can only appear once in a row, column or box. The example below shows a starting grid on the left, next to the puzzle. Note that although numbers are used, the is no math or other properties of the numbers, so any or all of the nine characters could be numerals, letters, symbols, or even other images.

Initial Puzzle Completed Puzzle

And now...
There are a myriad of variants to the classic Sudoku format, and this version is a bit twisted (literally). The boxes are still the standard 3x3 cell in which each character may appear only once. However, now there are places between the boxes where rows and columns may "bend" as indicated by following the curved lines, in a way that still preserves the number of cells in each ("row/column") to nine. Each of these nine characters must also all be unique within that "row/column".

In today's puzzle, we are using letters instead of numbers in the grid. When the puzzle is completed correctly, use the highlighted cells in order to create a 12-character string and enter into certitude to retrieve the final coordinates.

You may begin:

Enter the twelve red highlighted cell values, in order, into the certitude checker below.
