The same TASEP comes up as the key to understanding so called reduced random walks in the affine Weyl group of type A in work by Thomas Lam. I will present recent work, in which we have proved a conjecture by Lam about the exact direction for such a walk, by studying this TASEP. As a corollary it also determines the exact shape of a random $n$-core partition.
