Although Tater Tot is only 25 feet tall, its steepness, thuggy moves, and rock quality make this route a worthy challenge.
Start to the right of the first bolt on the arete and move left using slopers, kneebars, and underclings. Once in the roof, make a couple of more burly moves past the second bolt, and top out on easier terrain.
