P girl, in the thick of it.

This is an amusing little diversion, and, quite unique. Climb up to the right of Pooh's Honey (first couple of bolts can be used for pro, slinging long will help with rope drag). Stem around/over to easily avoid the low angle moss runnel. Climb up to the small tree, sling it long for pro if desired, then up to the horizontal roof crack. Get yer guns loaded, start pluggin' cams for gear and jamming whilst moving to the left. Aim for the hole and wonder if you can a) get into it and b) get through it.

Pooh says, "Then would you read a Sustaining Book, such as would help and comfort a Wedged Bear in Great Tightness?"

"For some minutes he lay there miserably, but when the five hundred and eight-seventh Heffalump was licking its jaws, and saying to itself "Very good honey this, I don't know when I've tasted better," Pooh could bear it no longer."

Fun stuff.

Pooh likes his honey.


Immediately to the right of Pooh's Honey. Either walk off the back side, or, climb around and down (take care!) to the anchor on Pooh's Honey.


Clip the first couple of bolts on Pooh's Honey (long slings for the traverse to the right). Protection: selection of cams from 1 through 4 camlot (or similar). A #5 camalot would probably not go unused.
