Robin Hood's Cave Innominate** VS 4c
[Unknown Climber on Robin Hood's Cave Innominate (VS 4c), 2 kb]14m. The thin crack is reached by a delicate traverse from the left or direct (5a) by a hard mantelshelf. It provides finger jams, runners and slippery footholds, and leads to the Right Twin Cave. Move up and right to a good stance on a higher ledge. Escape easily out right across the balcony or better tackle ....... © ROCKFAX

One of my favorite climbs ever. Enough holds, but also relies on gritstone - the perfect combination. Leads up to the coolness that is Robin Hood's cave and also a hidden cave up top! An excellent end of the day. 3 stars.

Not sure if I missed something but I can't see how the traverse is any easier than the direct. Either way it seems you would end up at the awkward off-balance move up to the vertical crack.
