Resurrection Top 50
| E4 6a|
<< Flying Buttress < Left Wall | Cenotaph Corner > Right Wall >>
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.

An amazing route despite not actually getting the on-sight. Fingers pealed off the last flat holds at the very top and took a very nice whipper. Good gear and great position. definitely 3*** route. Worth noting, not a great route to warm up on with a hang over and leave something in the tank for the last run out to the top. (The holds to the left of the last spike may look like jugs but there not, they're positive, but definitely not jugs).
