Dean starting up the arete.
Start on the left side of the arete, and work your way to the right following the line of bolts to the crimpy finish. If anyone knows the original name or FA info, please post up.
Ascend the arete on the right side of the large roof on Africa Buttress.

Cardiac Arête, originally a top rope that was soloed by Eric Sutton in the late 1980s.

There's a chance of seriously damaging the rope when falling on this route. I had to chop ~3m.

Where did you fall, and what did your rope get damaged on? I haven't fallen on the route, so I can't be sure, but I don't recall any sharp features that your rope could run over.
