Cardiac Arete*** E4 6a
[Hmmm?, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
More technical than "heart-stopping" but still no push-over at E4. Follow Sexual Salami to the where it swerves back left over the first overlap. Step right here to a small perch on the arete. Climb up the right-hand side of the overhang to a cluster of pegs. Then make a wild move back left to gain the slab/arete above the roof. Thin moves lead worryingly to the top. © ROCKFAX

First ascent. I remember Henry Folkard leaning over the top looking down, eyes on stalks... just like mine must have been! I had two poor pegs in - one soft steel one stuck out so far I tied it off and bent it down. I plead incompetence as I understand they're pretty good now.
