Robin Hood's Cave Traverse* S 4b
[Key thread, Robin Hood's Cave Traverse (70m), 1 kb]An expedition from above Wuthering all the way to the finish of Robin Hood's Balcony Cave Direct. It is mostly ledge shuffling but the bad-step between the two caves needs care as it is difficult to protect. Belay along the way. © ROCKFAX

dannyboy83 - Lead O/S - 28/Jun/14 with Ben Ochner

longer BMC true version, not sure why this route is in the "Trough routes" ticklist as you don't climb through the cave at any point!

Led a bit, soloed a bit, seconded a bit. Step across was sketch-orama being wet and slimy. Fun though

Shouldn't of really bothered using ropes...
charley - Lead O/S - 14/Mar/12 with Ange

Charley used the thread in the left cave to "protect" the step between caves, would have still had a big swing though!! He then forgot to place gear until the crack up to the belay stance so it made it feel a little bit spicy on second with a big swing the other way! We then soloed across to the exit. The rope drag would have been awful if you were doing it in one.

Nice moves stepping between caves, then got loads of drag, could have been more enjoyable as 2 pitches. Will probably do again at some point (nice views!)

Should have switched pitches. I found first pitch desperate and second pitch easy, while partner vice versa. Unforgettable!!! [Note Rockfax cut this route in half, which is very lame of them, use the BMC guide for max fun]
