I was curious if anyone knew how stable most tufas are? There are lots of climbing areas that have them that don't seem worse for wear, beyond polishing. However after reading some of the aggressively negative comments on Rock and Ice under Sasha's video of climbing in Cuba I was wondering how does one know when tufas are solid or fragile?

Sasha Digiulian establishing tufas too furious

I thought National Geographic had an interesting couple paragraphs about how all climbing in Cuba is illegal though the law does not seem enforced often.
