[Tom cranking hard on Ressurection, 3 kb]They say it's harder than Right Wall, but at least it has gear! The final wall sees many wobbling leaders as arms start to fade fast. 40m. Start on large holds just left of Cenotaph Corner, passing a (sometimes) insitu thread. Long moves (peg) lead to an easier traverse left to join Left Wall. Sprint up the right-hand crackline and stuff it full of gear. Take a deep breath, step left and finish boldly up the wall. An alternative finish is to follow the crackline up rightwards, past a flat hold, to the top - about the same difficulty. © ROCKFAX

Did it in the dark with no torch...Went right at the top this time, which actually felt a little easier than the leftward finish.
dswansonlow - 2nd rpt - 03/Sep/13 with Darren McMaster

Took Redhead's finish. Awesome! Felt really steady. Finished as the sun was setting which made picking out footholds near the top tricky. Couldn't work out how to go left at the spike so went straight up!
shed_hed - Lead O/S - 03/Sep/13 with Dougie Swanson-Low

Found the bottom bold then the rest was engaging face climbing, nearly pumped out at the top good buzz, right hand finnish
brices - Lead O/S - 30/Aug/13 with Ben Norman

Awesome, wanted to do this for ages. Bit anxious as I fell off Katana a few weeks ago and Flakey Wall last week, so I thought I was doomed on E4s... But this felt fine!

OOH YES!! What a route! Left hand finish. I only just managed it by the smallest amount. Such a good feeling to get on this when it was only just possible for me.

Speeddemonsi - Lead O/S - 06/Jul/13

Beautiful climbing, just enjoyed the moves with sustained interest all the way. Tricky move after the peg. Good, spaced gear. Lots of resting places. Gave me confidence for Right Wall.

Knackered after left wall. Will save the rest for a day that I can give it what it deserves
Sardien - 2nd dnf - 02/Jun/13 with Helena Robinson

Foot popped with hands and feet set up for the long final move to the flat hold. Pleased with the attempt, climbed well and pushed hard, but sometimes you don't get lucky. Brilliant climb.
AJM - Lead dog - 01/Jun/13 with Tom Lambert

Fell off right at the top. Not for midgets so I went up the Redhead finish in the end. The lead is still some way off.

Tom Livingstone - Lead O/S - 17/Aug/11 with Jez Hawksworth

Not too bad if your stamina is good. Did left hand finish as way right looked wet. Would recommend this as the move left has a couple of good crimps that you can use instead of stretching and it is easy to top out after that. The gear is good in the crack so it doesn't feel scary.

I fell off a couple of times at the crux (hard for the short), then managed to top out at last, though it required an absolutely top effort at my limit. Though failed to onsight it, it was one of my best rock-climbing experiences. Supreme!
