Unlike the other steep tufa routes this one requires more delicate climbing up small insecure holds.
Climb up onto a boulder and cover some easy ground to the first bolt. Quickly the climbing becomes balancy and tough to read. Continue up getting the occasional "great" hold to some large rest huecos. Rest here a make a few cool layback moves to the mid anchors.
After the Mid Anchors the climbing changes dramatically to overhanging slopers. Pull a hard boulder problem V5? and continue up another 3 bolts to send Sun Burst 13a
Between Tufa Tussle and Millenium Meltdown. Starts above a large boulder blocking the trail.

The first pitch is a crumbly POS!

Really I thought the rock quality was pretty good. A few holds felt "crumbly" but nothing pulled off. I pulled alot more off of Black Sunshine and other routes on this wall. Like alot of Homestead routes they could use some more traffic to clean things up.

I also thought it way pretty clean relative to most routes at homestead. Just needs more traffic.

For most of the route very clean. Watch out for the lose hold just before the mid point tufa curx. Seems like the rock there is white and brittle and one larger hold seems quite lose. But Ben is right.

Fun climbing might be a little soft at 12- but I have not done a ton of routes to get a sense of the place.

I didn't have any problems with rock quality. Perhaps this has seen more travel. I thought this route was a lot of fun! Would definitely recommend it. Need to come back for the send but thought the route was a lot of fun.
