|Silver Cascade Slab aka Hesitation Slab
This is the left-most climb on the slab. There are no bolts.
Start just left of Tunnel Vision and smear up to the left side of the large arch visible from the ground. Here you can place some gear (small wires to 1/2"), and then continue on easier terrain to the top of the wall. You can belay using the bolts at the top of Tunnel Vision (if hangers are missing you will need some wires, or a #2 or #3 Camalot).
Descend by walking down on the left.
There are no bolts on this climb. Bring small wires, and maybe a cam or two, up to 1/2". You can also belay with a #2 and #3 Camalot, near the bolted belay for Tunnel Vision (hangers could be missing).

Fun climb and easy for the grade, but this one is essentially a solo. I found no reliable placements for wired nuts; I slung a flake at the ledge and set a small cam a little higher up but I don't think either piece would have held a fall. Anchored to a tree root, 100' from base of wall to anchor.
