Climbing for Dummies is a crash course in old chimmney technique to slab climbing to verticle jug hauling. Start around the corner 20 feet left of Chicken Head Hop
. Chimmney up 15 feet (5.6) to the grassy ledge and walk a few feet up to the base of the slab. Start under the first bolt and slab up (8+) past 3 bolts to a balancy stance under bolt # 4. Clip it and climb vertical up past 5 bolts. It is a bit of a jug haul with a couple of 5.8 moves, the last one just above the last bolt 8 feet from the two bolt anchor. This is a fun, pumpy, little bugger with three distinct types of climbing.
About midway up the east side of Bobcat Ridge, 20 feet left or downhill and around the corner from Chicken Head Hop
8 bolts, no other gear to a two bolt anchor. A standard rope gets you to within 5 feet of the ground on the rappel. 60 meter rope is better to use.
