Follow the arete, then move left to the anchors.
On the arete/face to the right of the tallest face on the Tall Wall. Lower Off.

Enjoying the step-through down low. This was an exceedingly enjoyable route. Highly recommended.

You might want to mention that the route moves hard left at the top, to the mussy anchors at the top of Tall T.

Fun moves, route does cut hard left at the end. Got my rope stuck in a crack, had to climb up quite a bit to retrieve.

Careful getting your draws back on the way down as you have to swing over or tram to get them. Fun route but the flakes feel holllowwwww.

Fun route. Some people get confused about what to do high on the arete, so for them it's less fun.
Perhaps easier (and more fun?) if do not always climb close to the bolt line.

Many ways to go, liked the arete route over to the right but a little reachy to the bolts - but was super fun. Some tenuous flakes and an awkward traverse. A little tricky to clean.

Real pendulum potential into the crack on the left when cleaning top down, we trammed it. Or you can send a follower on TR to clean bottom up..

choss. most of the flakes are hollow and a lot of new climbers are pulling hard on them.

A fun route that differs from the usual flake-pulling up most 5.6-5.8s in Alabama Hills. The chossy gulley to the right of the route detracts, but the airy traverse at the end more than makes up for it.
