Start:Start 5m L of Fang, just R of the SE arete of Fang Buttress.
Description:The gear is good from the crack up, but below that...
Description:Easy unprotected slab to ledge, then fiddle in some very small wires (and beware the hollow sounding placements). Committing crux moves into crack, past 2 chopped bolts (one was placed retrospectively by Law, then the other appeared somehow, then they both got chopped). Up crack to steepening then head R and up over bulge. "The major feedback I got from locals was that you've got to be a hero to climb 18's at araps, but once you hit 23, out come the drills", Law.
