The route is amazing. Every pitch can be linked together meaning that leader leads 2 pitches, sets up anchor, belays second, second climbs and cleans, passes belayer and turns into leader for next 2 pitches.
This means you can get 400' of climbing without stopping. Its pretty amazing. The exposure is out of this world.
Pitch one is easy and gets you off the ground fast and easy. 2nd pitch is a one move 5.11
The other pitches are all between 5.8-5.10d.
Pitch 21 is 12a with a tricky sequence. The bolts are super close together which makes it a little easier.
Pitch 22 is run out but goes at 5.8
Pitch 23 is just a scramble with a sketchy fixed line to the "summit"
I would end at pitch 22 and rap from there. The traverse over is not really worth it but a must do for the first timer.
Rap took us about 3 hours. We did get lost on the 8th pitch rap so be careful
Take the main road up from Posadas, pass the pavilion, pay the guy in the camper his $1, take a right and follow trail to spires, follow trail up as it switchbacks. Trail was hard to find but once you were on it, you knew you were on it. From there find the base, start to climb for a half mile!
