The Path is approximate, not what I actually walked. Here are several key waypoints along the way.

36.77367, -118.47103: Bubbs Spine. This is the main ridge of the entire Bubbs Creek Wall. From the top of Bubbs Creek Wall, traverse climber's left along the top of the wall, gaining as little elevation as possible to reach the Bubbs Spine.

36.77631, -118.47485: Start of the "Cat Track". Follow this flat traverse to the left (climber's right), until it becomes a nice gully with cairns. Stay a bit high to gain the gulley, most likely hiking slightly back up hill at one point. The gully eventually joins the ridge with a climber's trail (cairns) that is mostly on the right side (climber's left) of the ridge. If you miss the gulley, it's ok. Just stay high and don't get suckered down to Charlotte Creek.

36.77463, -118.48191: Fork. Straight takes you to Charlotte Creek and an ok descent or take the non-obvious left to a better trail. Either way is pretty chill.
