Description Suggest change

A recent addition to the Tall Wall, 'Tall T' was put up by Tim Standing in 2007. The route starts 10 feet right of 'Banana Split', by intially climbing somewhat loose flakes to the open slab above. Most find the crux in between bolts 3 and 4, as one makes delicate friction moves on "kitty litter".

Location Suggest change

In addition to the description above, a variation exists (not shown in the current 'Bishop Area Rock Climbs' guide book) by initially climbing 'Banana Split' (the crack/seam which starts just left of Tall T) to its first bolt then traverse up and right, clipping a bolt underneath a buldge. Continue upward to the fourth bolt of 'Tall T'. This variation can be protected with small nuts (optional) after clipping the first bolt.

Protection Suggest change

10 bolts. Mussey hooks for anchors.
