The route is steep and thuggy the whole way, but good rests take a little of the edge off of the pump. It protects very well, if you climb at the grade don't let the steep and intimidating nature of the line scare you off. Have an adventure! Natural belay at the top, rappel from the Stars and Bars anchors.
Take the gully up to the Hanging Garden, about 150-200 feet past the Fire Wall. Once in the Hanging Garden, Pooh Corner is the overhanging, right leaning "crack climb" on the far right hand side of the wall.
Singles to #2 Camalot will do fine.
