This climb is located on the Civil Wall, immediately to the right of Tanner Dome.
From the chimney start (the start to several other climbs in this area), this nice sport climb ascends the face just left of the obvious arete. Stem up the outside of the chimney past the first couple bolts. At the point where you can no longer chimney, good edges start to appear. Climb this section past many bolts to the top of a pillar. From the pillar, make strenuous moves up the headwall and over a bulge (crux) up to the anchor. A long pitch with good position.
Roughly a dozen bolts to an anchor.

The bottom 25' is REALLY thin if you don't stem the chimney. The middle section is pretty cruiser with awesome features and the last bit from the ledge has some kick to it - a must do route if you're at the Civil Wall!
