Description

In my opinion, a dumb route. You can virtually step off the climb for the first 3/4 of the way on the right, ascending slope.

Protection

Standard sport rack. 6 bolts to a two bolt anchor. Shares the anchors with Little John's Big Stick.

Pretty silly route. If there is a 5.9 line on here, I couldn't find it. It's ledgy and not really sustained at all, so some of the falls could be less than ideal. I don't think I've ever given a bomb, but this route really doesn't even deserve a star. Jun 7, 2014

Meh. Not worth it. Go to Prince and the Pauper. Sep 4, 2011

I think the hangers on this route could be put to a better use... like bolting the approach to highwire in CCC (it's got to be at least a 4.10-)

"Comfortable for the grade" = maybe, 5.7+?

IMO, 5.9 is hard. Boulder Canyon grades are soft. May 10, 2005

I thought that this route was pleasant, comfortable for the grade. I believe that the more experienced climbers tend to forget how easy nines actually are, hence the bomb ratings. May 9, 2005
This route is an absolute waste. It has nice hangers, though.

I suggest that the hangers be removed from this route and put on Little john's Big Stick, a mere three feet to the left, replacing the kinda old- looking cold shuts... Oct 6, 2002

Maid Marian is a dumb route. And it's loose. And there's friggin spiderwebs everywhere on the route. And it's not even a good warmup, one move is MAYBE 5.8, I don't buy a 5.9 rating. Sep 6, 2002
