[Kasamyra Sainsbury on Buff, 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

Outstanding route for all aficionados of Tufa climbing. Definitely the best Tufa route I've ever done. 3 Stars is not enough.
migs493 - Lead O/S - 31/Oct/11 with RS

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!
