Topographical info for highways near me generally, and specifically how much grade on California Highway 1 from San Luis Obispo to Morro Bay?

My neighbor has a car I used to hitch rides on but it is slowly losing its 'drive' and having more trouble making it up even slight hills (so much so, she's afraid to take passengers, especially ones of my size). Now she has a very important trip to take to Morro Bay and anxiously wants to know exactly how much stress she'll get going up Route 1, compared to the alternate route via Los Osos. Is there a resource anywhere for seeing highway grades? My google-fu has failed me - I can't read the topograpical maps, and searching the words 'highway grade' gets me links to Drivers Ed.
