Le Chacal** E3 5c
37m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A wild and exposed initial pitch snaking through the band of mid-height overhangs.
1) 5a, 25m. Climb up into the flake-line as for as The Fall and Decline and then move right into the base of the well defined corner. Follow this line to the overhang and traverse strenuously right to a peg, and then commit to a difficulty move to gain the lichen covered wall above. Move up the wall and then move right to a ledge and belay.
2) 5a, 12m. Move up the crack on the right of the belay to a tree. Move rightwards into an easier groove to finish. © ROCKFAX

First pitch only. Found this a hard warm up. May have done the last hard move wrong whilst completely boxed but it still looked hard when I lowered back down. I was very lucky not to take a big lob when a large hold came off in my right hand after the hard move and hit me in the head (which was fortunately protected by my helmet).
