2.) Locate a small rock that will open the bolt-end carabiner gate pretty wide. The goal is to open the gate way wide, leave a bit of the carabiner's nose exposed and pinch off the gap where the gate meets the carabiner's spine.

Also, note the bolt carabiner is facing left. Because of the orientation of bolt hangers, this is the optimal orientation.
