This most-excellent 'moderate' seven-pitch route climbs the arete left of 3 Stone Place up to the ridge that leads up to the El Toro summit (see Scariest Ride in the Park).
Located to the left of 3 and Stone Place by ~10-15 meters.
Hike up the mining road for a couple of minutes and turn left on the trail for El Bobo. Follow the red painted arrows/dots up past El Bobo (the dunce-hat-shaped formation) and continue up the third class ridge. When you get to the red arrows pointing in different directions head right for the Zapatista route and straight for Satori (3 and Stone Place).
Bolts + anchors.

Killer views from top of this one. Climb the arete on the crux pitch!

On March 21, 2010, returned to this route 7 years after doing the FA. Led all pitches and found it in great shape. The rock is solid, and the climb is still great. Approach trail is in good shape, follow the ridge above the dunce until the trail cuts off to the left. We put up a new route which follows the first two pitches of Satori and then cuts out left for 5 beautiful pitches up to 5.11a (though once the dust gets cleaned out of the holds, it will likely be more like 5.10d). The new one is called "Off The Couch".

Just a comment on the anchors on the second pitch where the ledge is. The rock is kind of hollow and fractured there. You wouldn't be opposed if someone moved the anchors over on more solid rock?

As one of the FA people, I would say go ahead and move the anchors if that second pitch belay is hollow. Thanks
