Pitch two of Kater Garfield (6b)

Description 

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.

Location 

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

Descent is by abseil.

Protection 

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.
