Pitch two of Kater Garfield (6b)


High quality crack and corner climbing.

Pitches go at 5c, 6b, 6c, 6c+, 6c, 6c, 6a

Pitch two, a 40 meter fist/off width crack, is particularly memorable.


Located on the left side of the wall, beginning several meters to the right of Millius, which is marked.

Descent is by abseil.


Quality: As of autumn 2013, the in-situ gear in the route is pretty dated stuff.

Quantity: very varied, pitch one has one bolt, pitch two, a continuous 40 meter crack, is totally clean. Pitch three has bolts at very regular intervals. Pitch four, a hard friction slab, has a few widely spaced bolts... and so on. Bring a full rack up to BD4 with a few doubled (primarily for pitch two), and a cool head.
