Fall on an arete!

Fall on an arete!

Here's my back after taking a fall on the 4th(?) bolt. I was left of the arete while the bolt is on the right. Fell, legs hit the arete, swung around so my head and back hit the wall. Nasty. Worked on it with a helmet, then sent RP (without helmet). I've been careful on aretes ever since. (btw, this was in 2004. Just posted it again for someone who asked.)
