Tempest Rock is defined by the west-facing arete problem. The rock quality is very good, and the landing is good as well. There may be an additional problem that climbs the opposing arete.

Getting There 

Head slightly northeast from the parking area, it lies no more than 75 yards from the road, and it is easily visible from the parking area. Reference the page map for a better understanding of its location.

Climbing Season

For the Mecca Boulder Area area.

Weather station 15.8 miles from here

Draconian Binger V4 6B  CO : Grand Junction Area : ... : Tempest Rock
Draconian Binger is an absolute Nine Mile gem. It ascends a slightly overhung arete on perfect sandstone over a good landing.Sit start with a right-handed sidepull jug and a left hand on a small jib on the arete. From there, work up the arete using an assortment of bumps and slopers to reach the rock's apex and top it out.The trick to this one is utilizing an inconspicuous three-finger crimp at about the 3/4 mark, as this section is thin for holds and anything helps out....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
