Description:

Large Tufa to huge inverted buckets. Do NOT get on this route if it appears at all wet. This route has very fragile tufas. Tufas become very weak when wet.

Followed up Tufa One with this route and this is The Tufa climb on the wall....a must do 5 star route. FYI- staying right makes for some great rests and staying leftish makes a much harder route. Awesome sit down/no hands rest right before the roof and much needed too

5 out of 5 stars Best route at the Stead

Amazing features and holds the whole way up! Try to control the building pump, the crux was at the top for me.
It took me the same number of goes as you Roadstead. Fourth go over three seasons.

5 out of 5 stars The best 11c of all time

It only took 3 years and 4 burns and was worth it!

5 out of 5 stars OMG!

Well.....If you go to the homestead, and you don't get on this climb, then you didn't visit the homestead! Let's just say there is a tufa that comes off the wall 1ft-1.5ft that runs for 35+ feet! By far the coolest climb I have ever been on my life. A must do! At the top you have a choice, if you go right it's 11c+, if you go left (which is what kevin intended) then its probably 12b maybe 12c-. I don't think anyone has done it going left.
