Older topo given to us by Magic Ed, with some edit... BETA PHOTO: Description
15 wild pitches. Sustained quality 5.12 climbing. Expect a full day of fun with the most amazing views you can imagine. If you like the slabby, runneled climbs of Virgin Canyon, you will love this route. Take lots of water and headlamps.
Pitches run roughly, 1-5.12b, 2-5.12, 3-5.12, 4-5.11d, 5-5.12, 6-5.12, 7-5.12, 8-5.11a, 19-5.10, 10-5.10, 11-5.12d, 12-5.11c, 13-5.11, 14-5.10, 15-5.7 Most pitches feel around 12a/b. Pitch two and eleven felt like the cruxes. Location
At the base of El Toro. You will have to climb some easy 4th class limestone slabs to get to the base of the route
15 bolts and 2 60m ropes.. Not nearly as runout as you may have heard, and the cruxes are all super well protected.

How cold does it get in the winter? I am from Minnesota so I don't think I will have a problem but just wondering.
Is this route mostly technical slab climbing. If so, edges? Pockets? Slopers? Thanks!

And Alex Honnold 3rd-classed it in three hours. I'm not even sure I can change the oil in my car that fast...
