The Tempest* E5 6b
12m. The centre of the face has a big rattling flake, a hand-placed peg runner and hard moves on rounded breaks. Markedly easier for the tall (E4) and also slightly escapable. © ROCKFAX

Dodgy gear throughout, glad I didn't have to test it!

clean first go. good gear can be arranged. don't fancy the hand placed peg much but sideways nuts to the left seam to protect the lower section well, 1/2 cam top brake
Andy Peak 1 - TR - 03/Feb/14

Had to slap for the good hold, could feel the inertia of my body falling off before I realised I'd latched it! great moves, bit too bold for the lead today though, especially with how rattely that flake sounded

Alkis - TR dog - 10/Oct/10 with Oliver Hill

Felt more like 6a. Would still be a scary scary lead though...
BeccaSnowden - TR O/S - 09/Oct/10 with Andy

Hidden - TR β - 09/Mar/10

Bit greasy and blustery - took a long time to commit. Top crux is worrying as you really aren't going to get away with coming off...
alaan - Lead O/S - 10/Aug/08 with bex

Weasled right of the first crux.
Becky E - 2nd - 10/Aug/08 with Alan Royle

Some dynamic moves and some disgracefully sloping holds. Way too hard for me really but I did make it all the way to the top with just two falls.
jugglingeek - TR dog - 26/May/08

Andrew Sloan - TR O/S - 02/Mar/08 with Martin Haworth

Top class route. Very nervous even with the success yesterday
martroberts - Lead RP - 03/Jan/00

Only climbed E2 before trying this on toprope but got it first time. Did it another 5 times without falling and came back the day after to lead with Dad
