Best For Your Stick climbs a nice, little panel of rock that is very reminiscent of the rock at the Dark Side. The climbing is somewhat technical, on tricky pockets and good edges. This is a really good warm-up.
From where the trail meets the wall at the route 'Adversary', hike left past the other 3 Adversary Wall routes. Continue for a 100, maybe 150, feet, past several routes until you get to a deep, black corner that is up above the trail on a dirt mound. The right wall of this corner has a very defined crack/flake in black and pink rock. The left wall of the corner is home to 'Best For Your Stick', a nice looking, slabby, black route.
4 bolts, plus a 2 bolt anchor up and left of the last bolt.
