enjoyable, went for the hand traverse instead of through the ears as 2nd wasn't sure she could follow. Not sure I did the correct final pitch either, felt possibly closer to MVSish.... not that it really matters, great little adventure
johang - Lead O/S - 30/Jun/14

Interesting hand traverse to get around the 'donkey's ears' but more of a scramble below that. I don't think we finished up the correct pitch 4/5!

Really enjoyed this, give the cave a miss, it does not add anything apart from serious rope drag. Going straight up the ears is by far the better option.

Odd climb. Pitch 1 and 3 were little more than a scramble. Pitch 2 was interesting but short, and pitch 4 was at the top of the grade I reckon. Very photogenic situation.....shame I forgot the camera.

I think going between the donkey's ears is what makes it severe. Enjoyed that and felt a bit overhanging, but placed the protection, pulled myself up and done it. Nice traverse at the end, and great belay stance at the top, with a sunny derwentwater greeting my first Severe lead of the year.
