Got on this with friends yesterday and it was generally agreed that it was the best route we did. The consistent feature size across variable angles marks a distinct and interesting contrast to Fall For Anything right next to it.

There are several places where the crust's surface rang with that distinctive hollow 'tock tock tock' when tapped, including the jugs at the start of the easy section. Noticed also a big dinner plate that could be levered off by a strong finger, though not in a position it's likely to be... Otherwise solid.

If you liked Cozmos and Screaming Yellow Zonkers, get on this! Aug 14, 2017

Thieves Like Us is one of the better 5.10+ climbs at Smith IMO. Fairly sustained sections with some great softball sized slopers popping out at random times to take a break on. Pretty steep, and long. I didn't find any loose rock on the route, so it appears to have cleaned up. Oct 19, 2014

It should be noted that the left side of this route brushes up against poor rock. Care is advised in order to prevent pulling any of the larger stuff down on your belayer until the rock cleans up a bit. Aug 9, 2013
