Stick clipping the first bolt is recommended as the crux occurs as you reach the good hold to the left of the first bolt. These opening moves are interesting and may involve taking both hands off the rock to reach the key hold above. After the initial crux, its smooth sailing on positive jugs and plates the whole way to the top.
This is a popular route for setting up topropes, someone still needs to lead it however.
From the approach trail, follow the cliff to the left, around a corner and up the hill over some boulders. This line begins up hill about 15 feet from the start of D.D.
5 bolts, shuts.

Definitely stick-clip the first bolt on this one. I think this route is more of a .10b one-move (or two) wonder, followed by 5.9 jugs. Opening moves didn't feel like 5.9 to me.
