Club Med is shorter than Weathertop and the easiest route there is 5.10 and steep. The bolted routes are more old school sport and so you will actually have to get your feet above bolt before you clip the next one even if you are 6 feet tall.
Park the same as for the Ruins and hike up the trail. At the top of the ridge turn right and follow a trail to the southern end of the ridge. You will eventually curve around to the west. To reach club med look for cairns the will lead you down through the shindaggers a hundred feet or so where you will see the top of the cliff. Work right about 60 feet and then scramble down to the cliff. To get to Weathertop continue going west until you can see the road below. If you have an extra rope you can set up a single line rappel to expedite getting back down on the ones you can't lower off of. Or work to the right along the top of the cliff until you find a way down on the north end of the cliff. It is not that obvious but once you figure it out it is pretty easy. A few more visits by climbers and the trail should be more obvious.
