Named after a bobcat that was prowling around the base.
From the bolted belay, a second pitch (30m, ~5.7) continues up the low angle stepped arete to the ledge below Bigfoot. Three bolts plus several pieces of finger sized gear.
From the belay atop the first pitch, rappel (don't lower, see note) or climb the second pitch and then walk off. Note you can rappel from the first station with a 60m rope but to lower you need a 70m. If lowering with a 60m you can only get to the pinnacle 5m off the ground and may have to downclimb from there. The second pitch anchor is bolts only, not a rappel chain. It is exactly 60m from the upper anchor to the base, but it's hard to climb the combined route in one linked pitch with a 60m rope because with all the pro placed the line of the climb angled and so more like 70m than 60m.
- *Don't let your belayer drop you by running the end of the rope through their device while lowering with a 60m.***
