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!

Hidden - TR O/S - 16/Feb/14

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
