Stick clipping the first bolt.

Description 

This one's a good warm-up for Thunder Struck. The crux is at the beginning, so stick clip the first bolt. It's a very hard 10b. When I climb it, I always put the stick back in the bush to the right of the route.

Location 

Right of Thunder Struck

Protection 

4 bolts to anchor.

I wanted to climb this as it is the only warm up in the area. I made my partner go first, as it looked kind of skechy. Lo and behold, he came face to face with a large black snake at the midway ledge.
