[Glyn Hudson, now above the infamous mono, wrangles with the equally infamous tufa, 3 kb]20m.

Rockfax Description
The right-hand tufa is hard to reach and pumpy thereafter. It has become popular to finish on the left, before the upper tufa. This is easier but still worth 7c+. © ROCKFAX

felt nails on first acquaintance then on second go up it seemed to come together. My first RP go was a surprise with me falling off the tufa due to a foot fuck up. Next go was a bit of a farce due to savaged fingertips.

Wow, amazing route. Stunning tufa wresting. Best route I've done at Malham. 3rd redpoint
Glyn - Lead RP - 24/May/15 with Luke

cool route but would rather forget about the excessive number of redpoints and days it took to actually bag it (especially the rp which ended with a fall from the flakes/jugs(!) after all the hard stuff). Surprise, surprise, felt easy 2nd rp today and was static on the mono move for the first ever time - grrr!
