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.
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.
