Robin Hood’s Cave is hidden on the left, half-way up Robin Hood’s Cave Gully. This superb bivi site has been used by generations of climbers; please respect it if you stop here. There are many fine climbs in this arena across the grade spectrum with the combination of Robin Hood’s Cave Innominate and Harding’s Super Direct Finish being the best. Guidebook page 167.
