Did the first two pitches.
good route. hard. be in trad shape for sure. i was in sport shape and it was super hard for me. make sure to register for climbing.
Got a late start, followed on El Matador, struggled up it, summited in the dark, bivied on top cause we couldn't find the correct rap stations. froze our asses off in the night, rapped off in the morning, got yelled at by a ranger at the parking lot, yet he was gracious enough to give us a pass. Epic.
A word to the wise: don't climb El Matador on an August afternoon. My shoes were gumming off the rock. The routes on the shady side were much more pleasant.
