1994 Chevrolet S10 Question: hydraulic clutch bleeding

There does not seem to be an easy way to bleed this system. Would it not be easier to remove the slave cylinder where you can get at the bleeder and then re-install the slave cylinder? Thank You -

open te bleeder with the cap off until all the air is gone. we use a vaccuum bleeder that works great. it takes a little time but works with the gravity bleeding. Roy -
