[Me just starting on Buf! for clean onsight. Great route., 3 kb]30m. One of the best tufa climbs in the world! It's got everything; hands-off rests, back and footing, knee-bars, egyptians and a terrible name. 30m long and many fail at 29.5m so summon everything you have for the last move. © ROCKFAX

YES! So tired, 6th day on I didn't think I'd have the beans to climb this route especially after seeing how far out from the crag Rob ended once lowering off. Milk the rests and its pretty steady away. Thank god the holds at the top are positive. Super classic.

An absolute battle, but not enough endurance. Still an amazing experience I won't forget. I will be back.

Outstanding route for all aficionados of Tufa climbing. Definitely the best Tufa route I've ever done. 3 Stars is not enough.

Hauled up to first big hanging tufa about a quarter of the way up but had to add it to my log book because it was AMAZING! What a route-stunning!
Sarah Brookes - TR dnf - 19/May/11

Led onsight to 7th bolt with rests on some bolts. Top roped the top after partner had onsighted the rest. Almost certainly the best route I have ever had the privelege to attempt. Maybe train like hell for re-aquaintance in two years. Awesome route and venue.

Good fun and managed five no hands rests!
derico - Lead O/S - 18/Mar/09 with Jonny

Got hideously pumped but managed it despite being crap at tufa climbing and having poor route fitness. Wore a headtorch as it was still light but well past sunset!

Fell right at the top, d'oh! Too pumpy, and more importantly I was unfit.
