The splendid Garcia Wall is home to a great bunch of classics, including the brilliant traverse of Fishing Line, the long escapade of Anthony Hopkins, and the ultra-steep Match of the Day. The wall here has been spilt into three parts, which the topography somewhat dictates - the crag is split roughly into three by the two largest caves.
