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.


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

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.

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...

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.

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

IMO, 5.9 is hard. Boulder Canyon grades are soft.

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-)

Meh. Not worth it. Go to Prince and the Pauper.
