Kind of complicated but try:

My manual site map was coming up for results, and personally, I don't like competitors seeing my site map. So someone here suggest I do a robot no index, so I did that. But now I'm wondering, does Google then not crawl my site map anymore?

I put this is a new months ago. The goal, was that the site map would not show up in search results, but that Google would still crawl the page.
