So you're out at the crag and you've found a sweet new route. The only problem is, the first bolt sits about 15 feet up and you don't particularly feel like decking today. At this point you would usually move on to a safer route but not today! Today you have your handy dandy stick clip you made via Instructables. When others would quiver in the face of adversity, you clip the first bolt from the ground and safely send that sucker.

Step 1: Materials

Painter's Pole or Trekking Pole (I used a trekking pole because I had an extra laying around, a painter's pole will extend further and would be more desireable)

Tape or Hose Clamps (Again I used tape because I had some laying around, hose clamps would be nice but aren't necessary.

Spring Clamp
<p>Great Instructable! I made one too! Especially thanks for showing tricks how to use it.</p>
Dude, your intro is pretty funny.
Isn't that the old&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thebrain.com/products/thebrain/" rel="nofollow">PersonalBrain</a> logo in the Intro pics?
Great idea especially when you dont feel sure and the first fall can harm your legs and mess up the climbig day
nice work!<br><br>hope you only clip the first bolt with tis stick. : ) :P
Nice! I've seen the pro versions of these, I never knew you could remove a biner with them too :D
a hair tie or thick rubber band on the end of your poll will work. but only if you need to clip the first bolt.
