Description

This is one of the more obvious lines on the rock. Climb up the obvious seam/dihedral just right of Merry Men. Everyone seems to climb the crux a bit differently, which makes this a fun yet strenous route. Be easy on yourself and find the no-hands rest just past the crux.

Protection

Standard sport rack. Follow six bolts to a shared two bolt anchor with Merry Men. Again, the bolts on the anchor are about a yard apart.

There seems to be two main ways to run this route: 11a if you step out left, 11c/d if you work the entire arete. If you work the arete (seems like THE route), this rig is amazing and unique. The arete is fabulous and made this one of my favorite 11s in BoCan. Jun 1, 2017

Combining Robbin' the Hood with the upper section of Prince of Thieves creates a four star 5.11. Bring a shoulder runner for the first bolt at the break to delete rope drag. Aug 10, 2009

Great route. If you don't enjoy sustained, balancey, tenuous climbing then this might not be for you. Found it hard to onsight...not too hard to TR second go. Excellent practice for your technique and footwork. Jul 2, 2008

With the exception of Prince of Theives, I found this to be significantly harder and sustained than any of the other routes at Sherwood Forest. Oct 29, 2003

Best route at the crag. You can make it power, but you can make it gymnastics and save the strength. Fun either way. One key foot looks like it will be gone some day soon, which might add a crux.

One of the most enjoyable sport climbs I've done in a long time.

5.11b. I didn't think it's at the top end of 5.11. Aug 7, 2003

Great route. Well worth the effort. Packs a couple of punches. Save some juice for the end. Mar 5, 2002
