My Favorite Things topo
The pitches are almost all 55-60m long, ending in two beefy bolt anchors, and the "official" ratings are:
I think these ratings are slightly soft, but considering the amount of climbing, you need to be solid at the grade to make it happen in a day.
With a 6 mile cross country approach, 2700 feet of climbing, 1200 feet of 3rd to the top and 7 miles back to the car, it is a burly, rewarding day.
