Climb Dog’s Hind Leg and belay just below the grass on a broad ledge.
Traverse horizontally left until stopped by a blank wall. Put in a good runner, and descend approximately 10m to a traverse line. Tension traverse into Um and climb this to just below the top. The second must then pendulum into Um.
Traverse a couple of metres to a small ledge, from where a hand traverse leads to Arh. Climb this for a couple of metres, then traverse horizontally left under a steep wall and at the first opportunity climb up to a belay on small ledges.
Traverse left and lower yourself over yet another ledge. Hand traverse into the corner. Climb to the top of the flake, then traverse into Pooh Corner across a sharp-edged and narrow ledge. Traverse left as for Pooh Corner and continue to the belay spike at the end of that climb’s first pitch.
Finish up Pooh Corner, or, if you’ve had enough, Cavalino.
A lengthy outing that improves as it gains height.
