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.

I core-shot a rope falling at the top crux of this route Saturday. Couldn't reach the poorly-placed last bolt to clip a draw, so I pulled into the top crux just before the chains and popped off there. The rope must have gotten snagged on the arête, and it nearly severed. The last bolt should either be moved lower or hung with a perma-draw so leaders shorter than 6' can get the top draw clipped before pulling into the crux.
