Nice! a bit of bridging avoided too much pump climbed straight on I imagine the top section would be pretty tough for a 6a+ climber.

'Introduction to tufa climbing' the guidebook says. Good intro, it's true, but very tough. Lots of technique needed and good footwork essential. Very burly climb!
Serena Lambre - TR dog - 11/Apr/14 with Jonathan Emett

only just! - felt like 6b+ for those of us who can't climb tufa

Awesome climbing on huge juggy tufas!! One of my favorite climbs all trip.. thought it was a bit tough for a 6a+ but I ignored the rest (big saddle seat about 3rd of the way up), which probably would've made it a lot easier although going through the pump made it more fun and interesting. Fun and thuggy climb!

Looked a bit intimidating - a tufa 6a+, so like cowards me and Tim top roped it, I think we could have lead it. It was Dave's wailing and screaming on the lead that put us off!

Accidentally followed the wrong line of bolts, so rested on the rope while I sorted myself out. Then decided to dog my way to the top, with the intention of leading it clean. Never got round to leading it clean...

Awesome tufa climbing, my most satisfying as it was lead clean. Love the variety as you move across and up the tufas. Sidepull flake below where the tufas start it going to break off very soon, crack is visible all the way across.
