Remember to clip the rope into the bottom biner on the first draw before you stick clip to the first bolt.

Learn from my mistake. Really heartbraking when the route starts with a 5.12+ boulder-problem-like section to the first draw 15+ ft. off the ground. Hope your belayer has the rope paid out long enough for when you're ready to clip, but not so long that you deck if your feet slip from the rock!
