FreeRider topo needed

Either I'm technically incompetent, or there's no information on the El Cap route "The Freerider" on the internet. Nor is it in McNamara's Yosemite Big Wall book.

If anyone can send me some info, the link to the route, or a REAL nice drawn out topo I'd appreciate it. I hear it's the easiest free line at 35 pitches of 5.12d, and Stephon Perron rope soloed it in 6 days a little while ago.

And I apologize if this post doesn't belong here, i couldn't find a way to post a question in the "routes" section....

I looked through Supertopo's Yosemite guide online trails thing, but in the index it just says "el capitan", but doesn't say which routes it covers.
Try posting over there asking if their book covers the route.

^^^
I think you meant 'Freeblast' there - Freerider is a free variation to the complete Salathe.
