A fun, easy, but short sport route on Bobcat Boulder. Climb the face past 2 bolts to a small roof. Clip the 3rd bolt at the roof and continue upward on the slightly runout slab to the ledge and a Palo Verde tree. Walk off to west or rap down using the rap station up on the wall a few yards to the north near Snakes Are Poodles Too.


The sport route with 3 bolts on the southeast corner of Bobcat Boulder, just to the left of the mixed route Crystaline Grin (5.10c).


3 bolts, sling a tree for belay or walk off.

Fun route. If you're not very experienced with slab climbing this is a good one to start out with. The runout at the top is not biggie, it's super shallow rock.
