Description [Suggest Change]

Seth's Pooh was an appropriate name coined by Greg Loomis, as it never really had a name but Come Out Swinging was a pun referring to the incident that happened during the first ascent.
While in the R section of the upper headwall, suddenly the rope went taunt, jerking one of my feet off the wall and pulling my arms into full extension. My belayer, James Glover, had stepped on a huge boulder at the top of the hill which dislodged beneath his feet and sent him riding it downhill like a surf board until he went airborne. As I struggled to look down to get my foot back on, I caught a glimpse of James soaring beneath the tree limbs yelling, "HOLD ON DUDE!!!" We both continued to exercise our right to freedom of expression until the situation was resolved. Needless to say, we lived to tell the tale.

Note: This is a bit of a serious route, as a ledge fall is possible during the bouldery R section near the top.

Start about 15' right of Pooh Corner. Climb up and around the left side of the low roof at the corner of the wall. Follow the obvious right trending seam that leads to the big ledge at half height. Climb off the right side of the ledge onto a thin headwall. Moving up and left, pass a bouldery section and sparse gear to your first good piece way up high. Evading the ledge fall, enjoy fun big moves through the roof to the top.
